Sofia by Night

Nezavisimost ("Indipendence") square in the center of Sofia (Bulgaria, Europe).
It's a typical example of Stalinist architecture.
At the end of the square stands the the former Bulgarian Communist Party headquarter. The square is close by the Presidential Palace to the right and TZUM warehouses to the left.

After the events of 1989 that led to the end of the communist regime, the square was deprived by the symbols of the former regime. The statue of Lenin in its center was removed and the red star at the height of the spire on the building site of the former Communist Party was replaced with the Bulgarian flag.
