  • After climbing the 500 steps, which are rather long, as to not like! Seriously it is not bad, it is a beautiful monument, but as always I think, these monuments to see from afar, are coolest.

  • The monument, the nearby mountains, the winding road that goes up and down Shipka pass, the history of the battle there and the traces visible, such as cannons and trenches, these are all worth a full...  more »
  • Do not expect me anything from this site, but I liked it so much. Due to the snow, we had to go walking, but the scenery was spectacular.

  • 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.
  • We spent a few hours climbing up to this impressive monument, walking around the mountain top and admiring the unobstructed views and it was well worth it. I regret not having a higher quality camera to take pictures with as this is one of the best locations in the country for that. Make sure to have a hat and long sleeve shirt as well as sunscreen lotion as the sun can be quite strong during the day. Also bring water as the stair climbing can be a sweaty affair. Stunning location!
  • Fabulous views on a sunny day and you can drive/park pretty much at the bottom steps of the monument itself. Highly recommended.
  • I love monumental architecture. So should you. In some way it's waste of resources. But it's damn good place to waste them.
  • Historical place where the luberty of Bulgaria is decided in one epic battle.
