We met with the guys from the Sofia Communist History tour while walking through the NDK Centre park. They were so friendly and very passionate about sharing Sofia's history. We even got to pose for photos in a real Trabant. What a cool experience!

Tour itself was very interesting with reasonable price. Tour is double interesting if you have funny people in tour group. In my case I was lucky: good tour + cool people :)
