Everyday life in communist Bulgaria: The Red Flat

We are more than happy to announce our newest project called the Red flat , a museum like space dedicated to the everyday life of Bulgaria during communism ( 1944 – 1989 ). The place is meant to be an experience for all your senses. Once inside you can touch, play, taste and explore everything in a cozy athospere.

Situated in a real residential building, typical for the city center of Sofia, the Red Flat is taking you back in time to the 80s, the last decade of the communist regime in the country. TV, radio, telephone, record player, magazines, books, toys and everyday items are telling you stories from the Iron curtain time of Todor Zhivkov, Roland Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.
