would like to share with you some info + pics from my two hometowns in Bulgaria. Dimitrovgrad and Haskovo, that are separated by 15 km. distance from each other, and are located by an hour drive from the Turkish and Greek borders in South Bulgaria.
I rarely travel to Bulgaria over the last years, but I am always pleased and feeling relaxed whenever I am back home.
So for now I will just upload pics of the Biggest Statue of Virgin Marry with Jesus in the world. Soon to follow with some more posts regarding my two home cities.
All pics were taken today.
The statue is located on the hill overlooking Haskovo, which is in the top ten biggest Bulgarian cities. I was wondering, if it is true this statue could be the biggest in the World, as I know that the same one could be erected in any country in the world, and might be that that there are many " The biggest" of the same kind in the world.
The sign says:
STATUE OF THE VIRGIN MARY WITH JESUS
Weight- 80 t., Height of the statue 14 m.,
Height of the base: 17 m., Total height:32.8 m.
Unveiled on 08.09.2003 and consecrated
by His Eminence Arsenius
Metropolitan of Plovdiv
Actually, I guess and wish there could be a Crypto Statue, BTC or STEEM, than a religious one, as we are non-religious society and we should put stress on innovations and Human Development. Of course there are old people, who might like it, but it is understandable and I do respect their opinion...
I did my due diligence and double checked the info in wikipedia, as being a Global person for me the most important thing is to know the truth, I do not care if it is in Bulgaria, or South Africa or New Zealand for example. For me is the same!!!
Found a huge one in Venezuela, bigger than the Bulgarian, but it turned out to be without Jesus, but all of the sudden looks like I found a bigger one in Bolivia. Called Virgin de la Candellaria and the height is about 45 meters.So few meters taller.
The park and in the farthest background can be seen the mountains of Greece.
Next to the Statue stands the Bell Tower.I took the stairs up and the vantage point was the best for shooting pics of Haskovo from a bird view.
Monument of the Fallen Bulgarians against Fascism over the period of 1923-1944.
Hope you liked my pics, stay positive and be happy!!!
