We walked past it daily as we went to and from our little rented apartment. The monument is smart and easily accessible for a closer inspection due to the most admirable manners of Bulgarian drivers who give pedestrians priority when they cross the roads. There...More

There are definitely more visually impressive monuments if Sofia, but this one has several interesting facts behind. First of all, it's dedicated to one of the most prominent figures in Bulgarian history. Secondly, its construction took 17 long years because of negligence. Thirdly, its shape...More

It is a place of worship for each Bularian, as it comemorates the National Bulgarian 19th century Hero Vasil Levski, if you visit the nearby Botanical garden or Quadrat 500 - national fine arts gallery you could have a drop to that monument too

For one such national hero, as is Vasil Levski to Bulgarians, I really expected more. Monument has nice location, but everything else is rather average. Not fit to a man who is so beloved by many and seen as a true national hero.
