It was one of the coolest places I’ve been to in Bulgaria. Last weekend I went to the old communist party headquarters. The building was located on top of a mountain overlooking the rose valley.  It would be hard to reach it without a car.

I’m not really sure what they were going for there but it’s interesting nonetheless. A flying saucer with a smoke stack.
