Post Sofia: Museum of Socialist Art

Address: ul. Luchezar Stanev 7 
Metro station: Joliot Curie/G.M.Dimitrov

The new museum showcasing art from the Socialist period (1944-1989). A large outdoor sculpture park has everything from the giant statue of Lenin that once stood in the centre of the city to the red star that topped the Socialist party headquarters. Smaller pieces reveal a gentler side to the Socialist ideals. The gallery inside has some excellent examples of 20th century modern art as well as the Socialist Realism genre we know from the period.
