this is an interesting statue. It doesn't take long to see. It is interesting even in the rain. It rained every day of our visit at the end of June. The folks said this was unusual. I think the rain follows my wife and I.

Alexander II liberated Bulgaria from the Turks so they have commerated that event with this statue. It's an impressive statue. If you are walking by, it's worth viewing.

A very proud bronze statue of Alexander II (Russian Emperor) riding a horse, who expelled the Ottomans from Bulgaria in the late 1800’s.

It is still an interesting piece of art, depicting many prominent Bulgarians in addition to the main theme - the liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. It can not be missed, but whether you will want to know more about it depends solely on you...More

What can I say? It's weird to rate a statue. But as far as statues go, it's big, visible, respected and covered the usual amount of pigeon droppings.

Nice statute with impeccable detail on all sides. Impressive location opposite the parliament building. Worth a drop off.

If you walk the main Sofia street in front of all main buildings you will hit it.If you hit it you will see it for sure.It is interesting for Bulgarian people but you will not miss anything as a tourist if you skip it.
