‘Buzludzha’ is the first punch-out to travel behind the Iron Curtain. The Iron Curtain of pre-1989, that is.

Buzludzha is the location of the first meeting of the Bulgarian Communist Party, and the location was marked in 1981 by the erection of this amazing structure, at great expense to Bulgarians (who at the time could ill afford it!) Like the lovechild of Steven Spielberg and Vladimir Lenin, Buzludzha appears to belong not only to another time, but to another solar system. No glue, no tape, no staples, no scissors required!

Buzludzha Lives!
