Population: about 43 000 people. Old, run down buildings, but lots of green areas - something I love the place for... And for the young female population... ;)

This town could as well be in Siberia, Russia. Built artificially in the early days of Communism, it is an exact copy of Soviet architecture. I have never been there, nor have I seen pictures of it.

^^ Thanks for the photos Tego :) the central square reconstruction looks pretty nicely done :eek:kay: I've never been in Dimitrovgrad ... but all i know about the town is that it could easily be turned into museum of komunism architecture.

Btw are they or some of them built in late40's-60's period. I mean if they're some kinda soc-style those must be one of the best examples. With some renovation the city will look very good and interesting.

History
Neochim PLC is the successor of the Chemical Plant in the town of Dimitrovgrad in Bulgaria which started its production activities on 5th of November 1951. In the beginning nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers were produced. Later on expansions, reconstructions and modernizations of the production facilities were carried out. In 1987 a new complex for the production of ammonia, nitric acid and ammonium nitrate was put in operation. In the period 1992-93 the installations producing sulfuric and phosphoric acid, aniline and nitrobenzene were shut down.

The plant's infrastructure is distributed on two plots of a total area of 2 300 decares (230 hectares), situated on both banks of the Maritsa river, outside the boundaries of the town. It is located 200 km southeast of Sofia, in a region with well-developed railway junction and near to Pan - European transport corridors # 4, 9 and 10.

Purpose
