  • Its awesome for sport, I climb the stairs every morning. The nature is amazing! Shumen is the perfect place to get in shape. 
  • Whenever we visit Shoumen city we always visit the monument. It was built in 1981 to commemorate the 1300th anniversary of the First Bulgarian Empire. there 1300 steps to react the plato. 
  • What a great bumbling monument, was my first thought. Of 30 km is to see it already. It is hard to find and is probably somewhere in Cyrillic. Via the tomtom and Google maps on the phone we succeeded to get there. Large car park, pay an entrance fee and then there in. Between a few concrete elements by you can see the images carved, Grand, especially if you then the meaning for the Bulgarian history know Very impressive. Also made impression, but don't really beautiful.
