Mound of Brotherhood, Sofia
The monument is located in Borisova Garden, which was previously known as Freedom Park. It was built next to the remains of 17 resistance fighters and members of the Bulgarian Communist Party.
The monument is an obelisk with two bronze sculptures of partisan fighters holding their weapons. Reliefs show the Bulgarian people, a welcome to the Soviet Army and a celebration on September 9, 1944.
It is argued that the monument is the most famous socialist monument in the city. The monument was opened in 1956 on the 80th anniversary of the death of Bulgarian revolutionary Hristo Botev. An inscription on the monument shares a quote from Botev: He who dies in a fight for freedom never dies.
