Scroll

01. Descriere

The Asenevtsi monument was built in 1985 in the city of Veliko Tarnovo, for the 800th anniversary of the rebellion of the brothers Asen and Peter, of the Asenevtsi family. We are talking about 2 of the 3 brothers in this family, who ruled Bulgaria after her liberation from the Byzantine Empire. The first two, namely Asen and Petru, raised the Bulgarian population in the Târnovo region and their brother, Kaloyan, managed to make Bulgaria one of the most important forces in Eastern Europe, being the first and only Bulgarian leader to have defeated a Crusader army. The upward sword symbolizes the medieval power of Bulgaria. The monument of impressive proportions is located on a picturesque spot, near the Stambolov Bridge at the foot of Mount Athos, on the bank of the Yantra River.
