As always, such monuments are very moving. This one is very understated, but more powerful for being so.

This beautiful lion waits for you between the Cathedral and the eldest church in Sofia. Very impressive but lies almost at a ground pedestal so you can enjoy every detail of it.

Nice monument to the Unknown Warrior, originally for WW1. The lion sculpture nearby is the symbol of Bulgaria.

Lion statue guardian but pretty basic memorial. Broader range of honorees than usual. Basically a walk by memorial.

In Sofia I did not miss a leons figures at all. There are everywhere: here you can see one of the best examples for impressive figures just on the eye level!

Here you can find the fire for warrior and lion opposite. If you will nearby Sofia Church you can easily walk and check it out.

Very good site, made in tribute to all bulgarian soldiers who died in battle. A bit on the small side, but still a nice place. Very near to the Cathedral of Saint Alexander Nevsky.
