Panorama hall – Pleven
The most important and remarkable thing when you visit Pleven is the Panorama hall. Nowadays there are 33 panoramas all over the world. One of them with the biggest dimensions is constructed in Pleven, about 170 km to the north-west of Sofia. Pleven is one of the largest Bulgarian towns with a millennium history and full of historical sights. Pleven became internationally famous with the five-month battles during the Russian-Turkish war 1877-78 as a result of which Bulgaria was liberated from the 500 years of Ottoman yoke. The Pleven Epopee 1877 Panorama depicts these events combining painting, plastics and architecture in a whole artwork. It was painted by a team of 11 Russian and 2 Bulgarian artists. The Panorama was officially unveiled on 10 December 1977.
Everything there is very realistic and where ever you stay, you feel as if you're in the center of the battlefield!
