What to expect

On this insightful and informative walking tour around Sofia, learn about Bulgaria's Communist past with your English-speaking guide, who is also a history specialist. Meet your guide at 10.00am and spend the next three hours taking in the city’s key Communist sites.

The main focus of the tour is Bulgaria’s Communist past, and you’ll see traces of that history everywhere you venture. Begin at the Monument of the Soviet Army before hopping on trolley — a relic of older times — to the National Palace of Culture, which holds the annual congress of the Socialist Party (and which displays a piece of the Berlin Wall).

Next, meander down Vitosha Boulevard until you reach the former headquarters of the Communist Party, before heading to the site of the Georgi Dimitrov Mausoleum. The tour winds down when you head to the antique market around the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, where you can pick up some Communist-era relics.
