"Founders of the Bulgarian Nation" memorial complex

A visit to the "Founders of the Bulgarian Nation" memorial complex.

This monument was opened to the public in 1981 in honor of the 1300th anniversary of the founding of Bulgaria. Massive sculptural compositions, fragments of inscriptions and mosaic panels recall the most important events in the early history of the Bulgarian nation.

Those who enjoy traveling on foot can climb to the monument up the 1300 steps that start in the center of the city in front of the Vasil Drumev Theater.
