The Buzludzha Monument Abandoned in Bulgaria – Remembered Even in Disuse

The Buzludzha Monument in Bulgaria. In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Turks.

It was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement. It was opened in 1981. No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.

    From an architectural point of view that thing is absolutely gorgeous. Shame it is going to waste. I’d love to visit it before its gone.
