A picture taken on March 14, 2012, shows a fresco mosaic depicting Communist international leaders Friedrich Engels, Karl Marxand and Vladimir Lenin in the crumbling oval skeleton of the House of the Bulgarian Communist Party on mount Buzludzha in central Bulgaria. Over two decades after the toppling of the regime they glorified, the megalomaniac monuments of the communist era are still standing, setting a quandary for Bulgarian authorities, who can neither maintain nor dismantle them.
