  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lot of steps if you want the exersise
