Creators of the Bulgarian State Monument
Creators of the Bulgarian State Monument information
This massive, Soviet-era hilltop monument was built in 1981 to commemorate the First Bulgarian Empire’s 1300th anniversary. Climb the staircase behind the History Museum for the 3km path leading from the equally communist Partisan’s Monument . The circuitous 5km road going there starts along ul Sv Karel Shkorpil at the History Museum. Go by taxi (5 lv one way), and then just walk back down the steps to the centre.
The Information Centre , about 300m from the Creators of the Bulgarian State Monument, has information about the structure and surrounding flora. A 3km path passes the Information Centre and car park, finishing at Shumen Fortress.
