Panorama of the Pleven Epopee 1877

Panorama "Pleven Epopee 1877" is the only monument on the Balkan Peninsula. It was built in 1977 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the liberation of Pleven from Ottoman domination. The monument rises on the battlefield itself, in the Skobelev’s Park-Museum on the southwestern outskirts of the city. The liberation of Pleven is a turning point in the course of the Russian-Turkish War of 1877-1878.
