The Horse, Sofia
Favorite thing: The Tsar Osvoboditel monument by the renowned Italian Sculpture Arnoldo Zocci, is one of the most beautiful in Sofia. Situated on the square in front of the parliament building, it is an expression of thanks from the Bulgarian nation to its Russian liberators. The 14 meters high monument portrays the Russian Tsar Alexander II, astride his horse, holding the declaration of the War of Liberation. The upper part of the pedestal is a relief composition underneath which small bronze bas-relief illustrate important events from the war.
