Tour description

Sofia’s free communist tour, featuring a Trabant is now available every Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 am. The meeting point is next to the National Palace of Culture and Starbucks on (Fridtjof Nansen Str.) The tour is approximately 2 hours long and features an iconic classic car called a Trabant. The object of the tour is to take you back in time and make you feel what life was like for people living in Bulgaria during the communist era. Our focus is not to put you to sleep with statistics but rather show you what kind of challenges people had to deal with both during and after the communist era. This is a tour for everyone that is curious about this period in history. This is why we have not put a price on it. We believe that everyone traveling to Bulgaria should have an opportunity to take something away with them. Useful information: The tour will require the use of the metro for one stop, if you need assistance with purchasing a ticket your guide will provide it. Also please dress appropriately for the weather. No Reservations required. Groups of 10 or more please let us know by email.

The tour was great and riding in the small car is really fun. The guide had a great sense of humor and had to deal with a tough crowd which he managed greatly. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all, sharing about his childhood and his way of seeing the story today. Thank you!
