An eternal fire burns in the middle under the gold-plated dome. The Pantheon is one of the 100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria.In order to build the Pantheon in 1977, the "All Saints" church in the old Rousse cemetery was demolished. The new building was opened to visitors on 28 February 1978. After a public discussion in 2001, the Patheon was "Christianised" by placing a cross on top of its dome. The "St Paisius of Hilendar" chapel, as well as a museum exposition, were founded at that time.

    Old Rousse cemetery gradually turned into a Pantheon of Bulgarian heroes. Here, immortalized the names of many Bulgarian independence fighters and other national heroes. There are always customers.

    This Pantheon has an interesting story which speaks a lot about the generation that built it. It's not an extraordinary attraction by itself, but it's worth it  more »
