Buzludza is a historical peak located in the very centre of Bulgaria. In 1868 was the place of the final battle btw. Bulgarian rebels and the turks who occupied the country at that time. However, far more interesting fact is the "Buzludza Monument" was built on this peak by the Bulgarian communist regime in order to commemorate the events in 1891 when socialist assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement.
The monument is easy accessible by paved mountain paths. Yes, the communist spent lost of money to transform Buzludza peak in one of a kind place on earth.
The main gate of the building is locked to prevent visitors for any harm. Because the monument is left to the mercy of the nature, a visitor can notice that from inside the degradation is massive. It's a miracle how the celling is still standing.
When a pictures is word 1000+ words...
From the terrace there is amazing view. Look north and in clear weather you can also see Romania. Turn south and you will see the remaining part of Bulgaria.
