This is a nice monument that you will not miss if you are wondering around Sofia. It was built on the spot where a statue of .Stalin was removed. There is a lot of controversy over the owl, although symbolising knowledge, it has nothing to...More

Towering opposite the Largo with Serdika at her feet. The statue of Sofia is a relatively new addition to the city.

You can't miss this gaudy attempt to replace a Lenin statue with something more modern. Best views are from the Serdica ancient site.

Considered to be a symbol of the city, replacing the Lenin's monument, unfortunately it was elaborated with eclectic eelements. So now it is a mixture of paganistic and Christian symbols and misses to impress.

If you drive through Sofia you can’t miss this monument, she stands alone keeping an eye on Sofia, she replaced a monument of Leningrad when the USSR let their grip go of Bulgaria, Happy Days

They replaced a statue of Lenin with this strong statue of Sophia. It is in the center of the city and you can'tmiss it if you are walking around. I actually liked the modern feel of this figure.
