The 1300-year-old monument was built for the jubilee anniversary of the establishment of one of the most ancient states in the world - Bulgarians. From there, such a view opens up not only to the city itself but also to the incredible views. From the very plateau you can descend with a hang glider, with which you can see these amazing bird's eye views.

This is the beginning of the famous Khan Omurtag's inscription, reproduced on the vertical concrete blocks at the Founders of the Bulgarian state Monument. 1300 concrete steps lead to it from the theatre in the centre of Shumen. If you are not fit enough to climb all, you can take the zigzaging paths with only a few steps, enjoy the forest and be rewarded with a breathtaking vew of the town of Shumen and its surrounding countryside from the top. Along the steps you can see lots of birds and squirrels, if you are lucky you can encounter a fox or a deer in the forest besides the stray dogs which are harmless.

Very interesting sculpture and we were lucky to have the place to ourselves. We didn't tackle the steps as it was too hot. Like everything in Bulgaria, extremely good value.
