It was supposed to be revolutionary, including shops, hotel, post office, cafes and restaurants, a large function hall and administration of the local government. But Central City Square in central Bulgaria has never been completed. The construction started very unfavorably in 1988. Unfavorable because just one year later the political system of the country slid into an unstable democratization, with enormous financial consequences also on state-owned construction projects. In 1989, all work was stopped. To date, there are no plans for the future of the building.
The draft is quite interesting. Apart from the pure size also the ecological orientation is outstanding. Large parts with open green areas on the roof, as well as green terraces, were supposed to compensate for the land use, especially of the urban industry. An underground hub for public transport was planned to relieve traffic. Architect Ivan Sivrev brought Georgi Stoilov on board as a consultant, an avowed fan of Le Corbusier and the concept of the "Radiant City". Even at the beginning of the planning, there have been disagreements between the architect and his team. Many engineers considered the concept unrealizable.
There are plenty of stories that are said to have taken place in the ruins - including the murderer of a child as well as various ghost and junkie stories.
