  • Very interesting place, even from Soviet time still impressive. Sculptures and mosaics are fantastic. You can get idea for grateness of Bulgarian Imperia at time. Really good time.  more »
  • Brutal monument worth seeing Soviet. They look like huge figures taken from the Lord of the rings. In addition we arrived when the box office was, and saw him free. If not 3 lev. Deserves your visit worthwhile even if it is from the bottom of the people it seems horrible.
