What better vessel could there be than an iconic, former-East-German Trabant for navigating a narrative of Bulgaria’s communist era? A few clever young Bulgarians have bought a little blue “Trabi” and are giving free tours of Sofia with the aim of doing just that.
Weaving a Narrative
The “Sofia Communist Tour” weaves a historical background of the Balkans, World War II, and the dissolution of the USSR into a narrative and tells it while driving and walking to various Sofia landmarks. The tour is fun and informative, and the guide loves to laugh and share personal stories about growing up in Bulgaria during this period.
I would recommend it to both Bulgarians and foreigners alike!
