13 meter high monument is standing on the place where Bulgarian national hero Vasil Levski was executed by hanging. A historical site.

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

The location is perfect, it is laying on a place next to technical university of sofia. But the monument is nothing extreme, just an average pole.

This monument marks the place where Levski died. Do not expect any grand statues or anything of the sort since it wouldn't be really appropriate for the place. On this spot Levski was executed by the Ottomans in 1873. It was not selected because it's a nice place for a monument - back at this time it was far in the outskirts of Sofia and the city virtually grew around it.

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.
