Do you know that most citizens in Sofia don’t know that there is a real piece of the Berlin wall in our city? It is located right in the center – in the park of National Palace of Culture also known as NDK in Bulgarian.
After the end of World War II, the concrete barrier of the Berlin Wall not only divided Berlin and Germany in two but physically and ideologically divided the East from the West. It was a symbol of separation, and its demolition began in 1989.
There are pieces of the Berlin Wall all around the world and you can even find some on eBay. The piece located in Sofia was donated by Berlin citizens in 2006 as a symbol of peace and unity.
How to find it within the park? Face the main entrance of NDK, then turn left and head to the Fridtjof Nansen Str. and Vassil Levski Blvd. Right before you cross the street, look left and there is the monument!
Keep in mind that it is often an object of vandalism and it is not uncommon to see new graffiti on it from time to time.
