/ About

Buzludzha VR is a virtual reality project based on the environment of the Buzludzha monument built by the Bulgarian communist regime in the 1970s.

The structure has been abandoned since 1989 and this led to its ongoing physical degradation. The main aim of this project is to raise awareness about the monument and suggest a new purpose for the abandoned megastructure.

Buzludzha VR is an unguided exploration experience and also a small history lesson about the building, all presented inside of a redesigned, conceptual version of the structure to show what it could look like if it was ever restored. Buzludzha VR allows the audience to explore and sense the monument in a way that would otherwise be impossible in real life.

For example, the implemented corridor museum features photographs of the Buzludzha Monument in its current derelict state with the ability to teleport to the place from which a specific photo was originally taken to compare our restored version to its current real-life equivalent.

There are also various photos of interesting places of Bulgaria displayed on the panoramic corridor wall, with a playable voice-over description to learn more about what they depict. And so by the end of your gameplay, we hope you will have an increased understanding of what the Buzludzha Monument is now, what it used to be, all with an additional grasp of Bulgaria in general.

Buzludzha VR Cinematic 2017

The cinematic is a real-time capture of the Buzludzha VR environment and doesn’t show any of the interactions available in virtual reality.



We are excited to announce that we are currently in the process of finalising Buzludzha VR.
Stay tuned for more information.
