Alyosha is great place where you can escape from silver and faster daily routine and go for a walk in the green Park. It's very good for children and for adults.

Alyosha soviet army memorial is standing at one of seven Plovdiv hills. You can see all city from the top of it and the view is really good. My target was sporting so I ran to the top and turn around.
