The Bells Monument (Park Kambanite)

The Bells Monument outside the city centre of Sofia was installed in 1979, when UNESCO declared it International Year of the Child. The monument presents more than 70 bells from across the world, on pillars that are marked with a message from children from the respective nation. Occasionally, the seven main bells, one for each continent at the top of the central pillar, ring along to parades or events held around the monument.

Do & See

The central downtown district is where you will find the major sights of Sofia’s long history, with traces of Roman, Byzantine, and Soviet presence (neoclassical Stalinist architecture is still to be seen). This is also the city's business and commercial heart, where the major shopping avenues and entertainment areas are located.
