G Auad, a reader of The Artificial owl nicely sent me some pictures of this incredible abandoned building located in the mountains of his country, Bulgaria. This is the first inclusion on AO of a reader's suggestion, and frankly I hope to get a lot more, because this one is great. Thanks G Auad!
The flying saucer shape building is called the Buzludzha Monument, It is located in Buzludzha National Park in the Central Stara Planina, right in the middle of Bulgaria.
So what is the story of this construction exactly? In 1891 the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement. In honour of this act was built the Buzludzha Monument, one of the symbols of the socialism in Bulgaria. The building is now abandoned but still stands alone in the most beautiful landscape.
