When one visits Veliko Tarnovo (I did in autumn 2013), everywhere from the old city one can look towards a central point of attraction: The Four Horsemen Monument for the Assens (kings of Bulgaria).
Information about the monument can be found on the internet so I will jut post here (much better) pictures (than the ones found on the internet) :
- first, a view of the city on the hills. this is ‘the reverse’ of what one sees while wandering around in the old city:
- looking at this former glory one can easily see the grandor that communism dreamt of. This kind of buildings can be found all over Eastern Europe. I for one had a memorable experience with the Old Hotel Belvedere in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
- in closing, I leave you with my view of this monument. I truly believe this photo makes it more justice than the others on the web:
