Does anyone know what country/city this is in? Or maybe just the era/political climate of when it was constructed? If so, type your answer (best guess) in the comments below. ... If it’s any help, I didn’t plan to be go here. My flight ✈️ from LAX was delayed, so I missed my connecting flight and had to spend the night here. ... #history #trivia #geography #famousstatues #historicalplaces #regaltutors #theregaltutors #ohtheplacesyoullgo #historicaltrivia #travel #traveling

A little bit in love with this limited edition photo series from life in socialist Bulgaria. 📷 🙄 🇧🇬 @imaginaryarchive — Two boys timed-out in the familiar uniform setting of the communist living room. Parents’ preferred method of punishment at the time. 👉🏻 — • • • • • • • • • • • #momentsofmine #passionpassport #searchwondercollect #vscocam #vsco #searchwondercollect #mytinyatlas #vscobulgaria #vscoart #vscoartwork #vscobulgaria #instart #framing #historicalphotography #photography #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #timeslonggone #onceuponatime #communism #vscocommunism #communistpast #archivephotography #interiorphotography #artwork #artphotography #backinthedays #timeout #communistera #lifeasitoncewas at Spitalfields

Have you ever imagined how it feels like walking on the #ceiling of a #house? Look at this #mindboggling upside down house in #Zakopane, Poland, where everything- tables, chairs and even bed and toilets are also put #upsidedown.

Recently dad has shown me pictures he had taken almost 40 years ago. As a beginner photographer, living in Warsaw, he had been taking part in mass protests against the communist government. No firearms were used that day. However, ZOMO didn't mind to use batons, tear gas grenades and water cannon trucks. People barricaded themselves in the old town, defending themselves with paving stones. Not so long ago. May, 1982. Warsaw. #prl #warsaw #communistera #protest #photography

Back in The U.S.S.R.: The field of this #carpet depicts the iconic #RedSquare in #Moscow picturing the #Kremlin #SpasskayaTower #LeninMausoleum and #SaintBasilsCathedral with a #Soviet #RedStar pointing to the #CommunistEra framed by charming European neoclassical bouquets of #RedRose models set against a dark ground field interpreted in a whimsical village aesthetic. Such carpet picturing the Red Square at communist times was a symbol for official military parades demonstrating to the world the might of the Soviet armed forces was most probably commissioned for a person of interest in the Communist party. . . . #KrasnayaPloshchad #PlaceRouge #IvanTheTerrible #placerouge #cathedralebasilelebienheureux #laplacerouge #redsquaremoscow #Москва #saintbasilcathedral #ussr #KremlinClock #sovietredstar #CommunistArt #sovietmemorabilia #СССР #nostalgia #collectible #SovietPropaganda #sovietart #sovietcarpet

The chandelier from communist times is still hanging at Sofia Airport Terminal 1, reminding us all of an era that may seem like a lifetime ago, but is still very fresh in the collective social memory of my generation. Many of my friends have recently been speaking with nostalgia about our childhood, which was full of fun, games and true friendship. Childhood our kids will sadly never experiance. #HappyDays . . . . . . . . . . . #bulgaria #sofia #airport #airportsofia # #chandelier #art #communism #symbolsofcommunism #communistart #chandeliers #chandelierdesign #redstar #communistera #communistarchitecture #propaganda #bggram #bulgarian #bulgaria🇧🇬 #picoftheday #photooftheday #airports #travelgram #travelgrams at Летище София / Sofia Airport

During our extensive travels in Europe, the best tips on places to eat at have consistently come from the owners of the apartments we’ve stayed in.. .. .. Mr. Gabor, the astute keeper of the apartment we stayed in at Budapest was at the top of the heap during our travels earlier in September. Based on his recommendation, we made our way to “Gerbeaud Cafe” on Vörösmarty Square at the heart of the downtown of the Hungarian capital.. .. .. This ‘coffee house’, (a stone’s throw from the delightful Danube) which dates back to 1858 and is certainly one of the finest in Europe, served as a fitting finale to our sojourn in beautiful Hungary! From being frequented by the Hungarian queen to being state owned during the communist era, this place has seen some interesting times! .. .. @gerbeaud_cafe #budapest #budapest_hungary #budapest_is_awesome #igersbudapest #budapestgram #hungary #hungarygram #igershungary #visitbudapest #visithungary #gerbeaud #coffeehouse #centraleurope #eurotrip #travelgram #igerstravel #ig_travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #seeforyourself #travelwithme #beyondtravels #dobostorte #sundae #vörösmartytér #danube #throwback #communistera #hungarianqueen #stateowned at Budapest, Hungary

The Communist era left Bucharest with districts full of panel buildings. The district surrounding the Palace of the Parliament or the People's House became an alternative to the Old Town. Some people say that the #Parliament, the biggest building of Europe, was inspired by Soviet architecture, others say that it looks more like North Korea. The Palace itself has a lot of Romanian motives in its architecture and became the “peak point” of the Communist era style. This is one of the many blocks of buildings that follows the same aesthetics and form. • • • • #romanianarchitecture #communistera #arhilovers #ig_photogramers #ig_worldtravel #ig_romania #lonelyplanet #natgeotravel #culturetrip #ecplorebucharest #bucharest #romania #igersgreece #travelphotographers #travellerworld #traveller_stories #travel_drops #travelphoto #travelgram #instatravel at Bucharest, Romania

Communist era apartments. My guide told me her parents back in the 80s paid the equivalent of 30 euros a month in rent for a one bedroom apartment. She also said that in 1990, they were able to purchase it close to nothing - less than 15000 euros. Wow! #travels #sofia #bulgaria #traveller #tourist #communistera at Sofia, Bulgaria

Bucharest's architecture is a mixture between classical and modernist styles! The city is surrounded by buildings built in five main architectural styles: the Brancovian style, the Neo-romanian style, the Art Nouveau, the Art Deco and the Communist era style. The modern landscape of Bucharest combines all of these styles and at first sight it seems really disorganised. But if you stay for a little bit longer here you start to get used with it and actually enjoy it! 🏛 . Архитектура Бухареста - смесь между классическим и модернистским стилями! В городе полно домов построенных в пяти разных стилях: стиль брынковяну, нео-румынском, модерне, арт-деко и коммунистическом стиле. Современный Бухарест, на первый взгляд, выглядит безалаберно, но если пожить здесь подольше то можно привыкнуть и даже наслаждаться таким видом! 🏛 . #bucharest #architecture #bucharestarchitecture #beautifulplace #cityofarts #romania🇹🇩 #traveller #travelromania #travelbucharest #romanianphotographer #history #brancoveanustyle #neoromanianstyle #artnouveau #artdeco #communistera #modernlandscape 🏛 .

Case study. “Communist economy is a state of recession permanent crisis. There was no shortage of unofficial products, almost all the merchandise was regulared and as soon as it appeared in the warehouse it immediately disappeared. Under these circumstances there was no sense of advertising, so the symbols functioned differently than in the western country.” “共產主義經濟是一場經濟衰退的永久性危機。 當時不存在任何非國營企業產品,幾乎所有的商品銷售都是被預先計畫好,貨一到倉庫就會立即消失了。 在這種情況下也就沒有使用廣告去鼓勵消費的必要,所以這些符號與標誌在西方國家的功能不同。“ (Patrick Hardziej & Rene Wawrzkiewicz, 2017, Preface section, ¶ 10). #polishdesign #logodesign #symboltologo #graphicdesign #grafikakomputerowa #polski #communistera #patrykhardziej #renewawrzkiewicz at Warsaw, Poland

Monday morning down memorylane. Daily basket in communist era Romania. Tea, Pepsi, milk, facecream and a pair of leggings (?) 😅 ... I remember going with my grandma to the local "supermarket" and using one of these baskets. Shelves were mostly empty, though, and there was a quota system in place in the 80's. . @ 100 years of Romanian Advertising expo @ Palatul Universul . .
