See a giant statue of Lenin and a red star that topped the Socialist party headquarters at Museum of Socialist Art. One of the newest museums in Sofia, this institution collects, preserves, and exhibits art created between 1944 and 1989. The museum houses excellent examples of 20th-century modern art and Socialist Realist art. You can watch documentaries and old propaganda films from the socialist era or study the museum's 77 monumental sculptures and 60 paintings. Smaller pieces reveal a gentler side to socialist ideals. The museum also has a large sculpture park, exhibition hall, and video room. Use our Sofia vacation generator to arrange your visit to Museum of Socialist Art and other attractions in Sofia.
