The view behind me is Shumen from above. Above - that is the monument "Creators of the Bulgarian state", built for the 1300-th anniversary since Bulgaria was established. It is on the top of the hill above Shumen and is visible from 30 kms distance. It is truly enormous and can be reached by car, or by a 1300-steps stairway from the center of the city.
It was the Easter day and we sat on a bench in the park surrounding the complex and fought with the colored eggs we brought with us. It was a lovely weather, a little windy, but sunny and the holiday mood was in the air.
