the monument and the opera

The monument of Alexander Stamboliyski, leader of the Bulgarian Agrarian National Union in the period 1918-23, prime minister 1920 - 23. During this years Architect Parashkevanov made the project for the unions house. But it could be built in 1949-53 as a great complex housing the National opera too.

Nice angle for this photo. I bet you couldn't get this come Spring.

A great building and sculpture. You really make my day photo after photo, day after day!

For those who haven't been in Sofia. Its about time.

As for me my eyes follow the building line from memory and a bit of imagination...

Cheers!
