  • An immense monument, with the highest part which rises more than 30 metres. Situated in a nice Park, near dli Stadium, is in my opinion very sad and austere, but definitely worth visiting if you visit Sofia.

  • The monument shows some damage - hands and parts of rifles are missing - but it is impressive and the park is lively on a weekend night. We enjoyed people watching and a free concert.  more »
  • It is a monument built in the center of the Park is located at Sofia University. Include a kiosk in the Park, where deserted feel.

  • although I a have a mix feelings about the soviet union, the monument is nice
  • The Soviet Union liberated Sofia, Bulgaria to free it from German Facists. I respect the Soviet Union for that.
  • 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)
  • Monument of the Soviet Army ... place is full of fun in evening ... scatting ... song ... dance ...

Where to stay in Sofia

Set yourself up for easy and convenient access to Sofia's historical core and its most popular tourist sites by staying in an upscale hotel in the city center. While you'll find some hotels on the main boulevard, look for modern hotels off the main streets to keep costs lower. Staying outside the center in the outlying neighborhoods means you'll need to use public transportation, but the network is extensive and accommodation prices farther out are lower. For a real budget-friendly option, consider staying in a hostel; the city boasts a wide array of these, many of which include breakfast.
