Travel back in time to feel what life was like for people living in Bulgaria during the communist era.

You will be picked up at your hotel in a classic Trabant car of the period, a vehicle designed in East Germany in the mid-20th century. Your guide will show you where to explore the most prominent and historical communist sites in the city.  The tour will take you through old, narrow streets, and will show you even the shortest streets of Sophia. Along the way, you’ll explore the statues of Lenin, Zhivkov, and many others in the quiet gardens of the Socialist Art Museum before returning back to your hotel.
