“heritage from the past”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

massive grey building in the middle of the park. May be this is an example of the remains of the communist heritage but it is said to be a synthesis of modern architecture and plastic arts. It offers all sorts of services ( cimema, cafes, restaurants, congress rooms...)

“Communist modernism”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The modern communist style - something like nothing. Anyway outside it is not so bad, but inside it is terrible. Very sad picture

“Big:)”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

It is an impressive buidling in communist style. Nothing to do in it, unless there is a concert/show going on. The square in front is good for walks. Also on the side starts Vitosha street - one of the shopping streets in Sofia

“Poor management,artifact from the communist past”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Where to begin with-the last renovation is probably before I was born,the toilets are paid,the interior is dark and ugly,the ticket system is so outdated,that all the information about the shows are handwritten.
