Neoclassicism, eclecticism, stalinist baroque – just some of the fitting descriptions of the former Party House, the Presidency and the Council of Ministers buildings. These are probably the most striking and impressive examples of classical stalinist architecture in Sofia, built by the totalitarian regime – the headquarters of the Communist Party, the State Council, the Ministry of Electrification and Heavy Industry, Hotel Balkan and the Central Department Store (TZUM). Nowadays, the square is totally reconstructed and showcases the historical layers of Sofia from Roman times until today.

#soSofia tip: The archeological findings below the Largo serve as an outdoor museum, take a walk.
