Close to the Nevsky church and right next to the Radisson Blu hotel you will find this statue in honour of the liberation of the Bulgarian empire. You can't miss it and ideal to pass by while walking through the city.

The statue represent the Tsar who won Bulgaria back from the Ottoman Empire. There was a guy cleaning the whole time and flowers everywhere. In front is the Russian building. Cool
