Sofia

Museum of Socialist Art

  ul. Lachezar Stanev 7     22 Jul 2019
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.

Somewhat off the beaten track, visitors will have to get the metro to Joliot Curie or G.M,Dimitrov stations and walk 300 or 400 metres down the hill.
