The Bulgarian Monument of Liberty - Shipka
Peak Shipka and its monument, symbol of the freedom and the independence of the Bulgarian people.


The Bulgarian Monument of Freedom is located on the Shipka Peak in the Balkan Mountains and is a symbol of the heroism and sacrifice of the volunteers who fought for the Freedom of Bulgaria in 1877. The glory of their fight is discribed in "Ode of shipka" written from the famous Bulgarian writter Ivan Vazov. This work gives the opportunity for the future generation of Bulgaria to go back in time to live through those historical events and to feel admiriable disire for freedom.
