you can reach the monument by car or foot. It's a huge statue, which you need to see from the tower next to it! With nice 360° overview on Chaskovo. It wasn't crowdy during my visit, so I had the tower all by myself, what was nice to take some pictures.

This is the Highest in the world statue of the Holy Virgin Mary and the Holy Infant! The statue is made of concrete ,it measures 14m (46 ft) and stands on a base of 17m (55.9 ft). Inside his base there is a small chapel.
The statue is a landmark of Haskovo and as it stands on Yamacha Hill offers a great view of the town.
If you visit it, don't miss to climb in the Bell Tower nearby!

After visiting the monument you can walk up to a bell tower nearby. The view over Haskovo city is great.

It's definitely impressive and tall but chatlic statue in orthodox religion town build over a monument that was for the victims of the fascism. Something not quite right there in my opinion.
