Communist Walking Tour of Sofia

226 reviews
Sofia is filled with famous monuments from Bulgaria’s communist era, but there are also many secluded places that are easy to miss on your own. Ensure you see the recognizable and hidden sights, and learn about their backstories on this walking tour. Exploring by foot grants you access to place inaccessible by traditional tour vehicles. Plus, discover the realities of daily life under Bulgaria’s 1946-1989 government from a guide—insight you wouldn’t get if sightseeing independently.

We were a group of 6 friends getting back in the time of the communist Bulgaria into the Red Flat. We all had a great free tour of Sofia the day before, and thanks to Mitko, our guide, we heard about this Red Flat where he attended us the next day. It was a great experience, finally a "museum" where you can touch everything! We litteraly put on the clothes of the bulgarian family who could have lived there. The audio is plenty of details and explanations, combined with the decorations and furnitured of the apartment, we all traveled back in time. We felt like we could understand way better the history of Bulgaria and the inhabitants of its capital. Thank you so much to the Red Flat team! This is defintly a must see in Sofia !

This museum is a unique experience with special attention to detail on the stories that are told to you. I really appreciated the fact that they opened the museum just for me as I was the only one (during this global pandemic). I really loved it and good value for money considering that your stay is about 1.5hrs (€9).

This extraordinary museum was a unique experience i recommend highly! It feels like you are entering a time capsule and there is a lot of cool stuff to see and really interesting information and stories! The museum is built in an immersing way and you can walk around by yourself and listen to the audio guide. The history is very intresting and gives a wider perspective and understanding of sofia. I enjoyed this very much. Also they are the nicest people they open the museum just for me and i really appreciated that. To summarize- this is so cool you should definitely visit

The visit to the Red Flat was an out of the box experience. The flat is preserved to communist times with impressive details (including a common era snack one receives as part of the self tour). The audio-guid is very detailed and interesting. We absolutely loved it and highly recommend a visit!
