sofia & buzludzha
Travelling for hours from Sofia high into the Central Balkan Mountain range to enter an abandoned communist head-quarters in the shape of a giant concrete UFO must rank as one of my weirder travel moments...
sofia & plovdiv
This was a double Bulgarian city break to Sofia in the country's west and Plovdiv in the south. Bulgaria, a land of golden cupolas and the Cyrillic alphabet, is trying hard to leave its communist past behind.
