National Assembly (Parliament)

 pl. Narodno Sabranie Sofia Bulgaria     more than a year ago

The slogan on the facade above the entrance "Obedinenieto Pravi Silata", loosely translated means 'United we are strong', which seems wishful for any parliament. This is the scene of regular public protests and back in 1997 the building was actually stormed and damaged, leading to the eventual downfall of the ruling (Socialist) party.Built in three stages between 1884 - 1928, it was built by Bulgarian Architect, Konstantin Ivanovich who had been living and working in Vienna.
