Museum of Socialist Art

  ul. Lachezar Stanev 7      02 902 1862     20 Jun 2023
Museum showcasing art from the Socialist period (1944-1989). A large outdoor sculpture park has everything from the giant statue of Lenin that once stood in the centre of the city to the red star that topped the Socialist party headquarters. Smaller pieces reveal a gentler side to the Socialist ideals. The gallery inside has some excellent examples of 20th century modern art as well as the Socialist Realism genre we know from the period.
A souvenir shop has good quality T-shirts, mugs and a few books for the time being. At present a catalogue is not available.
Next door to the Litex Sopharma towers, this is somewhat off the beaten track, but well worth the trip away from the centre. You will have to get the metro to either Joliot Curie or G.M.Dimitrov stations and walk approximately 400 metres down the hill.
