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.

Vasil Levski (18 July 1837–19 February 1873) is most reputable and loved national hero of Bulgaria. He is a great Bulgarian revolutionary executed (hung) by the Turks in 1973, in the outskirts (nowadays this is central zone) of Sofia, where now is located the Vasil Levski monument.

The plans for a memorial devoted to him were started after the liberation of Bulgaria in 1878 but the monument was inaugurated on 22 October 1895. This is a 13 m high construction, made of grey Balkan granite, with bronze bas-relief of the head of Levski. The monument is designed by the Czech architect Antonín Kolář.

This monument is located on the south east of the city center. It is walking distance to other attractions such as the Monument of Tsar II and the Sveti Sedmochislenitsi Church.

The greatest hero in Bulgaria.
It doesn't have to be beautiful. The country respect the hero, so, as many capitals and is roundways, this onde is a mark of history. Nothing more. And has a lot of traffic. Near Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

If you really like monuments, maybe you you'll love also this one, but for me is not worth to go there.
