I stumbled across this article on a new socialist art museum in Sofia. It looks really interesting and since I'm in Sofia I'd like to visit.

enter image description here

But the article only lists "in a Sofia suburb", Google Maps doesn't find it, and my other searching isn't working for me yet. Maybe it would be easier to find by searching in Bulgarian or even Russian? Can anybody find its address for me?

Currently found only this article with "maybe" address:
Lachezar Stanchev Street in the Izgrev borough And from comments found news about that opening date is September, 16.

This official news also says that this address is right:

Some of the National Art Gallery’s works are to go on travelling exhibitions, while some will go on temporary loan to the new Museum of Socialist Art, on Lachezar Stanchev Street in the Izgrev borough, near the Sofia office of the traffic police.

And this news finally get the right address:

7 Lachezar Stanchev Str (ул. Лъчезар Станчев 7)

(Google map, wrong street title, but from here location is right)

  • For somethat reason Google writes there a numbers instead of real street names. See my second link - there is a map of that district with Lachezar Stanchev street on it

  • OK so Google Maps sometimes accepts Ul. Lachezar Stanchev as an address, and it can find it. But it does not show its name. It makes it look as if it is Ul. 165 but that is the street curving around to the north of it. openstreetmap.org doesn't have the street at all. Bing Maps shows Lachezar Stanchev at maximum zoom on the street which really is Ul. 165! Sep 7, 2011 at 19:17
  • @hippietrail This is why I prefer second map - it is with notes how to get on that street.
