In Bulgaria, high in the mountains at an altitude of 1441 meters near Shipka, there is one of the most mystical structures of world communism - the
monumental, gigantic and awe-inspiring Buzludja temple.
This is how he was quite recently.
This is how it looks now.
Buzludja was built in 1974-1981 mainly with donations from ordinary communists. The house monument was made in the form of a flying saucer, topped
with a giant 70-meter stele, with 12-meter stars made of ruby glass. The dome was a complex structure of steel beams covered with copper sheets.
Under it is a giant hammer and sickle on the vault. On the walls there are mosaics with the faces of fighters for communism and a bright future.
The hall for cult celebrations for 800 people was designed by the legendary Bulgarian architect Georgi Stoilov. In this work, Stoilov surpassed
everything he had done until that time - creating a real engineering masterpiece in the then fashionable style of "modernism".
Celebration hall used to be

This is what the hall and observation deck looked like before
This is how they look now.
An underground power station was built to power the structure, roads were laid, and a Danish lighting system was installed. The decoration used
marble, granite, labrador, turquoise, bronze, silver and gold.
Here congresses and plenums were held, they were admitted to the party, the Komsomol, and pioneers. Dozens of tourist centers, shops, holiday villages
and so on were built nearby.
With the end of communism in Bulgaria, the holy communist spirit left this place. The unique monument of modernism was completely abandoned and
completely looted by looters in 3 decades.
Now completely plundered and crumbling Buzludzha is closed and no one is allowed there. Buzludzha's fate is very characteristic of all communism.
After it, only ruins, desolation and destruction remain.
What do you think, dear forum members, what other rituals could have been performed in this building? It seems to me that there was a temple of Satan,
but I could be wrong.
