I really enjoyed the whole concept of the monument. It has a nice view and you can simply chill with your friends and hang out. The place is really meaningful and preserves the bulgarian history from its hardest points - during the turkish slavery.

This is the biggest monument in Stara Zagora from the communism in Bulgaria last century. It was renovated last year and looks amazing now. But you have to check the history and the meaning of the monument. And of course, a nice place for couples...More
