Buzludha is the highest point in that point of the Balkans. It is located at any altitude of 1441 meters, and atop the highest point is situated the monument to the Bulgarian Communist Party – it is called the house-monument of “Buzludzha”.
During its ruling the area enjoyed lavish receptions and massive rallies for support of the party. However, with the shift of the global political climate the monument was abandoned and soon looted of its precious metals. However, the monument has not lost its grandeur, and in spite of all of these years casts its grandeur onto the valley bellow.
At the foot of the mountain the nation park “Shipka Buzlidzha” stretches to tens of thousands of kilometers. The park stretches from the monument commemorating the heroism of the Russian an Bulgaria soldiers who fought or the Bulgarian independence, to the church of Nativity to Buzludzha.
