Day tour from Sofia to Shumen Monument and Madara Horesman (UNESCO site)

The tour is a great jump into the beginning of the Bulgarian State on the present day territory of Bulgaria. First stop is in Shumen, where in 1981 was inaugurated the 52 meters high monument with oficial name "Founders of Bulgarian State". The date was not accidental, in the communist times the historians believed that 681 year was the year of foundation of Bulgaria, so they choose to commemorate the 1300th anniversary of it. The monument is the heaviest communist monument in the World. 21 figures and mosaic, which is the biggest triptych in Europe is fascinated with its composition.The monument is giant and could be seen from 30 km distance. Not so far from Shumen is located the symbol of Bulgaria - Madara Horesman. Included in UNESCO, the Rock relief is carved in 8th century by the first Bulgarian Rulers to show the power and the autority of Bulgarian Empire. The relief is unique for Europe and marks the roots of our great state.
