Former Communist Party Building (Largo) Jul 10, 2017
Three large neoclassicist / socialist classicist buildings divided by streets are known as a building ensemble named “Largo”. They were built to house government offices, with the middle building being the headquarters of the communist party. Today, the left one is the council of ministries while the right one houses the Presidential Offices. The former headquarters of the communist party is now used for administrative offices of the National Assembly. The buildings were completed in the late 1950s and until 2000, they faced a huge statue of Lenin which is now replaced by one of St. Sofia.

The Largo buildings are still one of the most dominant structures in central Sofia and make Nezavisimost Square one of the most representative places in the city centre.

Unless you have an appointment or work there, you can not visit the buildings from inside. Don't forget however to go into the courtyard of the Presidential Offices building where you will find St. George Rotunda and the ruins of a Roman bathhouse. Other nearby sights include the Roman ruins of Serdika at Nezavisimost Square and the Archeological Museum.
