Museum of Socialist Art
There’s an interesting new museum in Sofia: the Museum of Socialist Art, not far from our apartments at Cleves Este and Cleves Izgrev.
According to Sofia Echo, ‘It includes an open-air sculpture park, which features - among other items - a 45-ton statue of Lenin, that used to stand in the central Sofia spot now occupied by a statue of St Sofia.’
The museum features 60 paintings and 25 statues inside from the period 1944 to 1989, and 77 giant sculptures in the garden.
The closest metro stations are G.M.Dimitrov and Joliot-Curie.
