Shipka Pass

The dramatic Shipka Pass between Gabrovo and Kazanlak provides some fantastic scenery and great views of the Stara Planina mountains. Hiking trails criss-cross the landscape providing great opportunities for exploring on foot. At the top of the pass is the Shipka Monument of Freedom. Here you will find your reward for climbing the 894 steps. The view will be amazing of the mountains and valleys of the Stara Planina range.

At the monument there is a museum containing weapons and paintings. These paintings are to honour of the 7000 Russian and Bulgarian soldiers who died defending the pass against Turkish soldiers. The |Turkish outnumbered them 4 to 1.
