  • There are definitely more visually impressive monuments if Sofia, but this one has several interesting facts behind. First of all, it's dedicated to one of the most prominent figures in Bulgarian hist...  more »
  • And sill lavsky was born in 1837, and in the early 1930 's life becomes a revolutionary leader and a symbol of the national liberation movement of Bulgaria. He traveled in secret around the country to raise money and men to the war of independence of Bulgaria from the Ottomans. One rebels arrested by the Turks in 1872 and ainoho told them all he knew. Levski was arrested and executed by hanging two months later and became one to be the martyr of the Bulgarian national movement. He was hanged in the city centre on charges of planning a revolt against the Ottomans. Today, the center of Levski Street stands a memorial page. From here we walked little pedestrian street leading to the flea market. There are the ruins of a Turkish prison that stood there from the 16th century, where the rebels were Bulgarians. On the ruins of the prison address Doll said that Vasily Levski stormed here to release his way to eternal glory. The place has been restored and renovated in 2004. Today remember as Levski the greatest revolutionary of the Bulgarian State and its name are called streets, stadiums, monuments and sports teams. An impressive monument.

  • Interesting, if you are in the area, following to the stadium, you can see it. It's not something you can't miss, but for Bulgarians is the national hero. So do you ...

  • Паметникът на Васил Левски се намира в центъра на град София, България. Разположен е в средата на оживено кръстовище, регулирано с кръгово движение, при пресичането на булевардите „Васил Левски“ и „Янко Сакъзов“ и улица „Московска“.
  • The monument isn't the most exiting one but it's in a visible, easy to get to place.
  • The area looks terrible and if it's raining good luck finding cover, such a shame to have a memorial of Levski here.
  • we will have to learn that our most revered national hero deserves a bit more sacred place. One thing for this one - it stays there long time already
  • Vasil Levsi is the brightest symbol in the Bulgarian history; his legacy makes us all proud to call ourselves Bulgarians.As said by one of our greatest poets: "this who fall in a fight for freedom, never dies". The Monument is a very special place for every Bulgarian and I would recommend to all guests to our country to visit the Levski Monument and feel the great respect and sorrow that all Bulgarians carry in their hearts for the biggest freedom fighter against the Ottoman rule.
