Really good museum and it is half price on Monday and Tuesday. Says staff only but was all open. Tickets are around 2 Euro. Possibly the best place to visit here. About a twenty minute walk from the nearest Metro. Well worth the walk.

There is so many tanks, planes, missiles, trucks of all forms. Was very surprised by the stock. Some museums have only a couple of tanks or so, but the variety was impressive.

worth to be seen not for the military mahines in the garden, but because of the large collections of Fine art pictures telling the Bularian history, the collection of medals, and unique collection of guns , good for children to spend all day long there
