Vasil Levski Memorial in the Mountains

Vasil Levski, who worked to liberate Bulgaria from the yoke of Ottoman rule in the 1800s, is regarded as the country's national hero. The main stadium in Sofia and streets all over the country are named in his honor. We stopped at a memorial to Levski as we drove east through the mountains on Saturday morning.


The view from this lookout point overlooking a colorful valley cloaked in morning mists was amazing.




We stopped at the exact same spot on our return trip to Sofia later that day and again we were amazed at the view.
