The Monument is located just in front of the Bulgarian Parliament. The statue is from the Bulgarian people to Tsar Alexander II and Russian Army for their contribution to the freedom of Bulgaria.

At the central square just in front of the Assembly building. An equestrian sculpture of the Tsar. The work is very impressive and the visit can be along with the visit to the Cathedral.
