Boris's Garden

Interesting
Boris's Garden was designed in 1882 by a Swiss landscape gardener and later remodelled at the request of King Ferdinand I (1887-1918). Today, this vast park, famous for its rose garden, is one of the favourite haunts of the inhabitants of Sofia. It features fine shaded alleyways, an artificial lake, several stadiums (including the famous Vasil Levski Stadion, the home ground of the national football team), a large swimming pool and a few monuments. The most spectacular of these (41m high) pays tribute to the heroes of the struggle against facism.
