Step Inside Buzludzha – An Abandoned UFO-shaped Communist Building In Bulgaria

At the top of a historic battle field in Bulgaria stands one of the most famous monuments of its time. This monument was named the Buzludzha and stood for communism. The battle was between Bulgarian rebels and the Turks and this monument was erected in the place where communism ruled. Since the fall of communism this monument has been abandoned and forgotten about. It has been vandalized and is slowly falling apart. One man was able to sneak inside and took some absolutely incredible pictures of this abandoned place. Take a look.

The monument he saw on top of the famous battle grounds.

Can you imagine seeing this structure a top a famous hill and walking inside. This is the last thing I would expect to see and I’m sure glad that someone was able to take pictures before it is completely ruined. The communist party was known for their grand structures and this is just one prime example of their force at that time. Now this building will slowly decay into nothing but these images will make sure that it is not forgotten.
