This is the abandoned building of the former Factory for capacitors (transliterated “Zavod za kondenzatori”) in the suburbs of the city of Kyustendil.

Electronic industry in Bulgaria was one of the perspective economic branches in the 1970 and 1980s with several factories in the country. One of the pictures shows a metal artistic composition, representing the factory’s logo (the same can be found on the bodies of the capacitors in all Bulgarian consumer electronic products): the alegories of electronic and machine-building industries in which capacitors were used.

Artistic compositions on the facades of the factories (as well all kind of public and sometimes on residential buildings) were widely spread as propaganda, a measure of “aesthetisation” of the urban environment and providing “art for the masses”

It was probably built in the late 60s early 70s.
