NDK - national palace of culture, Sofia
The National Palace of Culture is called by us, the Sofians, NDK which stand for Naroden Dvorets na Kulturata.
On the picture you see the main buildin but actually there are several more. Built during the communist regime, now it is used as a congress centre and also houses several large concert halls, exhibition space, offices, cinemas, restaurants and shops.
It is the biggest Congress Centre in the Balkans and many cultural events are held there but when you walkin the corridors of the main building it looks more like a sopping mall then a place of culture :)
There is a garden around the buldings where you will find open air cafes and entertainment facilities for kids.
