  • This is a nice park and the monument gives it a sense of past. It is very interesting and informative. ( Also house skateboarding facilities)  more »
  • For history and especially WW2 lovers it's a good choice. For others - if you pass by, have a look. In my opinion, a special visit to this place is a waste of time.  more »
  • The monument is obvious. Interesting to see as a part of the story. However controversial. Sprayed with grafiti's skaters now serves as a playground. Typical Soviet war memorial as seen in Eastern Europe.

  • The park around the monument is not bad and is a great green spot in the center of the city. The monument itself, though, is as grotesque as anything can be - it is a monument to an invading army in the heart of the invaded country, and is still kept there by the strong influence Russia still has on Bulgaria.
  • Good place
  • although I a have a mix feelings about the soviet union, the monument is nice
  • A Powerful and ambigous Monument that you have to visit to get a right knowledge about the controversial past of the city and also of the nation, during the soviet time. I suggest to visit this place and other footprints made during soviet time with the support of the guides from the "Communist Tour". You could get some curious info about this monument; for example, that the bulgarian government has not the ownership of it but it still remains a property of russian federation.
  • A monument for a dictatorship... millions died and millions suffered because of communism and they have a monument for the army which started WWII. They should move it in the socials museum together with all the artifacts from the past (Muzey na sotsialisticheskoto izkustvo)
