As we were walking through the Bulgarian town of Veliko Tărnovo, we stumbled across this impressive monument, apparently a major landmark of the town. It is dedicated to those who died in four major wars – the Russo-Turkish, Serb-Bulgarian, Balkan, and First World Wars. 


The statue kneeling on top of the pedestal is Mother Bulgaria, whereas around the edges soldiers from the wars are depicted.

The monument is situated in a small but peaceful park, where we enjoyed a quick rest on the many benches.
