This is really not worth tracking down. There is not much to see and what you see is pretty unimpressive. I would not recommend going out of your way to view this monument.

Really hard to understand what the sculptors were thinking of during their work. It's not far from Palace of Culture. A strange one.

Erected around 1981 and described then as the ugliest monument in the world this monument is finally being dismantled. A mass of concrete with steel reinforcement was slowly being torn down. You can cross this fixture off your list.

If you want to get depressed and hurt your eyes - visiting this monument would actually help a lot. The ugliest thing in Sofia, no doubt. It is so bad that actually even birds avoid it. Serial killers, manic depression patients and leftist pseudo intellectuals...More

The monument was to be a celebration of Bulgarian history, constructed in just 8 months and unveiled in 1981 on the 1300 year anniversary of the founding of the Bulgarian state. When you look at it today you will see a total run down monument...More

No matter what you think of it, you wont see anything like it anywhere else. I wrongly thought it had been built like it looks today as some sort of 80's modern art. But apparently not, most of it has fallen down since it was...More

Maybe one of the most strange installation I've never seen. It matches an industrial and modern art located on a huge park. Even if I didn't like it by itself it fits with the whole park.

I stumbled upon this monument when lost around midnight trying to find a hidden nightclub and after 24 hours I still find myself affected by it. "Derelict," as used by a few other people is a near perfect word to describe it. People have to...More
