The Shipka memorial and the spectacular view from it

I don’t know about you guys, but I am not a fan of memorials and they have never taken place on my travel list. But the Shipka memorial makes an exception. From the very first moment I got there, I really felt this place was special. The monument is located in the Shipka mountain pass through the Balkan Mountains. It is a memorial devoted to those who died for the Liberation of Bulgaria during the sublime Battles of Shipka Pass in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78. Every year on Liberation day, March 3 people gather there to honour the deed of the one who lost their lives for freedom. You can imagine how deep places like this one can touch my heart.
