Maria Luisa Pool information
Lying southeast of the city centre, Sofia’s most attractive expanse of greenery is home to the Vasil Levski Stadium , CSKA Stadium and Maria Luisa Pool , as well as bike tracks and tennis courts. It’s laid out with countless statues and flowerbeds, and is a relaxing place to take a leisurely stroll on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The eastern end of the park is dominated by a gigantic communist monument built in 1956 and known as the Mound of Brotherhood , featuring a 42m-high obelisk and socialist-realist icons including a pair of partisan fighters, dramatically gesturing comrades clutching Kalashnikovs, and smiling, stoic workers. It has long been neglected by the authorities, and several of the socialist heroes are now missing limbs and gaining coats of graffiti, but small groups of pensioners come on occasion to lay flowers in remembrance of the red old days.
