 Europa Nostra urged the Bulgarian authorities to rescue Buzludzha
18 October 2018 Current Affairs:

Experts from cultural heritage organisation Europa Nostra have urged the Bulgarian authorities to rescue Buzludzha, a vast flying saucer-like monument, on a central Bulgarian mountainside. The monument is a brutalist concrete monument that was built to glorify communism nearly 40 years ago. 
The 230-foot-high structure, made of 70,000 tonnes of concrete, 3,000 tonnes of reinforced steel and 40 tonnes of glass, looks like it is hovering at around 1,400 metres above sea level. It has a 40-metre-wide ceremonial hall and was covered from floor to ceiling in mosaics depicting the history of Bulgaria’s communist party. Europa Nostra listed it as one of the most endangered heritage sites in Europe in 2018.
