This monument is near the Radisson Blue hotel in Sofia, worth stopping to look at for a photo opportunity

If you're passing by... It's a big statue - a memento of times passed. The Russians like to do everything 'big and proud'. It was right next to (our) Sense hotel, a casino and Casa del Habano.

This part of Europe loves its statues. This is just one of many that dot the city. Should you make a special trip to visit. No. But you will likely be walking about the city and come upon it as you tour. Check it out.

Right by the Radisson Blu hotel you have this amazing statue. Each side gives a different impression and the detail is impressive. Close to many other historic buildings.
