BULGARIA'S PARTIZANI MONUMENTS

When you travel around Bulgaria, from the capital to the smallest of villages, you will inevitably encounter monuments of stern men and sometimes women, with guns in their hands and passion in their eyes.

Surprising for a country that is proud of its 1,300-year history, just a few tombs of its grand kings have been identified with certainty.

Bulgaria has not changed its name since its founding in 681, as if the 200-year Byzantine and the 500-year Ottoman rule never happened, but the list of the preserved and known graves of its rulers makes for an extremely short paragraph in its long history.
