The Shipka Monument. It is a Monument to those who died for the Liberation of Bulgaria during the Battles of Shipka Pass in the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-78. It was opened in 1934. Designed by arc. Atanas Donkov and sculptor Aleksandar Andreev.
The monument is a 31.5-metre (98-foot) high stone tower. 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.
The top of the tower reveals a panorama of Shipka Peak and the surrounding area.
The Monument House of the Bulgarian Communist Party (also known as the Buzludzha Monument) was built on Buzludzha Peak by the Bulgarian communist regime. It commemorated the events of 1891, when a group of socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement that led to the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party.
