Standing opposite the parliament building, this very large, detailed statue is certainly worth seeing. Very intriguing and detailed sculpure is carved into the plinth beneath the main statue.

This is a lovely and impressive statue of Tsar Alexander the 2nd. The statue is located in a square in front of the National Assembly of Bulgaria.

Close to the Nevsky church and right next to the Radisson Blu hotel you will find this statue in honour of the liberation of the Bulgarian empire. You can't miss it and ideal to pass by while walking through the city.
