The drive was a little longer than expected, but the views and absolute beauty of this structure were breathtaking. I only wish the government would restore it before vandals and the weather destroy it. Take a quality camera, cell pics looked bland compared to those...More

I was so looking forward to this part of the trip, but the fog was relentless. On the day we planned to come here, fog was so thick, one could cut it. Next day we managed to catch a glimpse of the tower from the...More

Visiting this place is absolutely worth it even if the weather is bad. We came by car during such a low visibility, that we couldn't see the monument being just 20m away from it. Yet, it was worth walking around it and seeing the "UFO"...More

Buzludzha as viewed from the valley below looks ominous. You can see it high on the mountain top from practically anywhere in the valley. It becomes even more overwhelming due to its looming size as you walk up the main stairs. There is nothing welcoming...More

It`s worth going for a walk to see its peculiar shape. Even though it`s in deteriorated state it`s an example of the architecture from this historical moment.

I was nervous about driving here but it was actually quite easy except the last mile which had quite a number of potholes but if you’re careful they’re fine. It’s not apparent but you can drive all the way to the top. Right before you...More
