    Driving around purposefully with children and family. On the way we stopped at the temple with the graves of Russian soldiers. There were buried our countrymen-jaroslavcy. Shipka is impressive! Climbed to the top. Help in the education of patriotism!

    The Shipka Monument is an important bulgarian historical landmark. It was made in honour to those who died for the Liberation of Bulgaria during the Battles of Shipka Pass in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78. The place is really magnifisent.

    The symbol of freedom from Turkish slavery. Iconic monument for Bulgarians. A "must go to" location. Awesome panoramic view in clear day. Parking at the bottom of the 800 steps that take you to the monument.
