The highlight of our Sofia Communist Tour by Trabant car is the ride by our Trabant 1985. We purchased this car in order to provide an unforgettable experience to the customers that book the tour. After we visit the central part, we will take you to the Socialist Art Museum by the emblematic Trabant Car.

The Trabant car is one of the symbols of the communism all over Easter Europe.

Few interesting facts about the Trabant car:

It was produced from 1957 to 1990 by former East German car manufacturer. It had a duroplast body mounted on a one-piece steel chassis, front-wheel drive, a transverse engine, and independent suspension. The 1980s model did not have a tachometer. It did not have an indicator for either the headlights or turn signals. Neither it had fuel gauge, rear seat belts, or external fuel door. The drivers had to pour a mix of gasoline and oil directly under the bonnet/hood.

In the Socialist Art Musuem in Sofia you will see statues of communist Bulgarian and Russian leaders. Also, there is a projection of a documentary about the  life of the great leader of the Bulgarian Comminist Party. His name was Mr Georgi Dimitrov.

The guide will reveal some of the real life stories of people, some of them quite unbelievable. You will get acquainted with the historical events and facts that led Bulgaria and the countries from Eastern Europe to fall under the communist regime.
