A new interesting haunt on the map of Warsaw – Koszyki Hall.

Finally, a new place radiating with the feel of New York`s Chelsea Market or, for some, Madrid`s Mercado de San Miguel, has opened up in Warsaw. Under one industrial roof dozens of restaurants and bars with wide ranging menus have sprung to life. You can eat on the spot or pick and choose form the assortment of gourmet shops where to stock up for the weekend. Koszyki Hall invites friends for a casual get together but is also prepared to cater for business meetings. The place oozes with exceptional atmosphere.

ONE: this newly refurbished art nouveau marketplace hall dating back to the beginning of 20th century impresses with its space and persistently minimalistic décor,

TWO: it is the food enthusiasts who create its unforgettable atmosphere – vendors can talk about fine taste for hours on end!

THREE: it`s smack in the middle of Warsaw. No excuses, just make your way over there!

Architecture in Mexico City, Museo Soumaya


Mexico City offers a variety of experiences, one of them is to admire the architecture from prehispanic, colonial and really modern like Museo Soumaya, one of newest buildings in Mexico City, designed by the Mexican architect Fernando Romero.

The museum’s holdings include a collection of European Old Masters, with some splendid works of the Italian, French, German, and Spanish schools from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. There are also works from New Spain and South America in the collection, including paintings, sculptures, ivories, estofado carvings, and furniture from the viceregal period.

Museo Soumaya possesses the largest collection of works by Auguste Rodin outside of France. Rodin’s sculptures marked the advent of modernity. Also on display are emblematic works by the French impressionists and examples of nineteenth-century Mexican portraits and landscapes.



The “Bulgarian UFO” – The Abandoned Buzludzha Monument



Our team at Insight Events Bulgaria presents to you one little known architectural jewel.

In Shipka Pass, on the top of 1441m peak in the mountainous scenery of central Bulgaria, a UFO-shaped building stands like a watchtower. This concrete giant on Buzludzha mountain is the former Headquarters of the Bulgarian Communist Party and it’s beaming up increasing numbers of curious visitors.


Right in the heart of Bulgaria, the Buzludzha monument’s sci-fi architecture, history and setting cast a powerful spell.


Originally built as an assembly hall for the socialists, the building has been abandoned for decades. The region itself is not so popular for travellers. Most of the foreign tourists visit Shipka (10km southwest of Buzludzha) to see its famous pink and gold church, or Kazanlak (12km further south), the gateway to Bulgaria’s Rose Valley. But the “Bulgarian UFO” is increasingly tempting for day trips from historic cities Plovdiv and Veliko Turnovo (about 2 hours drive).


The road leading to Buzludzha bends along cliffsides and rigid terrain. These steep valleys are the scene of a series of battles from the 19th-century Russo-Turkish War. During the Battles of Shipka Pass, Russian and Bulgarian fighters repelled Ottoman troops against incredible odds and in sub-zero conditions. By building a meeting hall here, socialists broke ground at a nexus of Bulgarian national pride.



When you get to the monument itself you cannot oversee the signs of its former greatness. On the exterior wall, slogans in huge concrete letters urge workers towards glory. But today the dominant message is the striking red graffiti that reads, ‘Never forget your past’. Next to it, the word ‘Communism’ is redrawn as a Coca-Cola logo.


Despite the prohibition of local authorities to enter the building due to safety reasons, the braver can make their way inside through one of the busted panels. Once inside one can really feel the grandeur and pride or the old regime as remains of red carpeting, mosaic portraits and latticed glass ceiling glow alongside modern graffiti and piles of debris.


The Buzludzha Monument has been the center of a dispute for Bulgarians for years now. The choice of demolition or repair is the dilemma. It represents an image of the communist past that brings vivid memories for some, and on the other hand, it is seen as a blank space of opportunity for younger generations.

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 11.45.13 AM

There have been projects for restoration of the building, including a grand plan to turn it into an event venue for congresses, concerts and other happenings. As the road to the monument is accessible and offers plenty of parking spaces, such repurposing of the building is hypothetically a feasible idea. However, to date, none of the proposed projects is accepted and the building continues to deteriorate.


So the question is – is the Buzludzha Monument the next big tourist attraction or event venue in Bulgaria? As visionaries Insight Events’ team is eager to see this impressive wonder reborn and brought to modern times. We can only imagine the scale and uniqueness of the events we could organize there! Maybe one day…
