The statue remember the Soviet-Bulgarian friendship and it is located on top of one of the Plovdiv's hills. From there you have a nice view of the city at the sunset. No car nor public transports reach the statue; expect to walk 10-15 minutes along...More

Megalomaniac commemoration for the Soviet hegemony over Bulgaria. Little art value and zero historical reasons to exist. Didn't fancy it.

We have done this walk many times. It’s nice taking the steady climb to the top of the hill as the view from the top is great where you can view the whole of Plovdiv. There are several ways up and down, enjoy.

We really enjoyed the walk up to the hill. When you reach the top, you can ser the Aleksandar II monument and the statue of the communist soldier. And of course, you have a stunning city overview.
