About Alyosha Soviet Army Memorial, Plovdiv
The Alyosha Soviet Army Memorial was erected by the initiative of residents of the city of Plovdiv, in the year 1954-57. The memorial pays tribute to the Soviet casualties during the liberation of Bulgaria from the Government and their Nazi allies. An 11-meter tall concrete statue of a Soviet soldier is installed here, which tops a 6-meter granite pedestal. This Alyosha was about to be demolished 3 times, but the Bulgarians defended the monument forming a human shield. The site has a cosmic vibe to it and offers a spectacular view of the Plovdiv city.
