File 450 – Buzludzha, Bulgaria – The place where dreams fly into the sky
Sometime … somewhere in Balkan Area, people tried to build a utopian society … they failed … their utopia collapsed into everyday reality, like a sand castle! Trying to materialize their utopia, people have built a lot and spectacular! Like the ancestors of antiquity, they built a modern “temple” on top of the mountains, so their dreams are close to the sky … their dreams could fly higher!
In the following pictures you will see a remarkable construction … does not have any practical utility and it is bigger than the Rome Pantheon … it is far from a human community … it was not an astronomical observatory or restaurant … it was just a symbol … a dream to fly in universe!
The construction was made in 1981 and today it is just a lonely ruin … nature “is laughing” by the utopia of those builders!
After several hundred years, this building there will no longer exist … only the grandeur of nature will remain …
… but in that place, up there, I closed my eyes and for a moment, those people’s dreams seemed real … the flight seemed possible … the dream of flying to the stars, never dies!
