Owner description: The Monument to the Unknown Warrior with its eternal flame is situated between the churches Alexander Nevski Church and St. Sofia.
Reviewed 10 November 2017

The monument is very close to Alexander Nevski cathedral and to the Sveta Sofia church. The whole area makes you think of the stupidity of greed and war. More lightly, locals rub the lion`s leg, or try to caress the head.It seems that you are coming back to Sofia if you do so!

A peaceful place guarded by a huge lion statue. A place for reflection for all soldiers regardless of country of origin

you can stop or keep on walking. Seems to me, most people were interested in getting a shot with the lion. There is a flame in front of the building.
