map Shipka - Stoletov Monoment

The Shipka Monument is a memorial to those who died for the Liberation of Bulgaria during the Battles of Shipka in the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878). It is located on Peak Stoletov in Stara Planina, central Bulgaria, and was opened with a ceremony in 1934 and designed by architect Atanas Donkov and sculptor Aleksandar Andreev. The project was financed with donations from the people of Bulgaria.

The monument is a 31.5-metre high stone tower in the form of a truncated pyramid. A giant bronze lion, 8 m (26 feet) long and 4 m (13 feet) high, stands above the entrance to the tower, and a figure of a woman represents the victory over the Ottoman forces. A marble sarcophagus housing some of the remains of the Russian and Bulgarian casualties is located on the first floor. There are four other floors where one can find replica of Bulgarian military flags and other relics, and the top of the tower reveals a panorama of Shipka peak and the surrounding area.
