If you look at the monument, which was built as a socialist assembly hall, from afar, it looks like a space station. This is where the Battle of Shipka, one of the most significant in Bulgarian history, was fought. Every year, the country’s Socialist Party organizes a fair for members. Recently, the monument was a movie location for the action thriller Mechanic: Resurrection, in which Jason Statham and Jessica Alba are starring.
