The Freedom Monument honours events that took place during four consecutive battles that were part of the 1877-78 Russo-Turkish War and known collectively as the Battle of Shipka Pass. The end result was a defensive victory for the Russian/Bulgarian forces and the continued control of a key supply line through the mountains. More information about the Freedom Monument.
