The Assenevtsi Monument



The Assenevtsi Monument was built in 1985 in Veliko Tarnovo, when the 800th anniversary of the uprising of the brothers Asen and Peter. The sword pointing upwards symbolizes the power of Medieval Bulgaria. The impressive monument is situated in the picturesque location near the Stambolov Bridge, at the foot of Sveta Gora hill, near the Yantra River. The monument deserves to be visited in order to feel the grandeur of the medieval Bulgarian kings and to see the panoramic view that is revealed from there.
