Pleven Epopee 1877 is situated in Skobelev Park, the site upon which the deciding battle of the five-month siege on the city occurred in 1877 at the end of the Russo-Turkish war which contributed to the Liberation of Bulgaria after five centuries of Ottoman rule.
The building it's self is impressive but the crown jewel is the 115 meter circumference by 15 meter high panorama that has a 12 meter foreground. When one enters the chamber the immediate impression is of being outdoors, overlooking the battlefield. The lighting is very effective and the artifacts in the for-ground make the battle scenes seem real.
The only criticism I have is that it is best if you can be accompanied by an English speaking Bulgarian as the tour is in Bulgarian, unless you pay an additional fee for the guide to also translate into English, (and I found that her English was not the best, although understandable)
Admission $3 Lev, English translation an additional $6 Lev, photography of the Panorama an additional $5 Lev.
