For this week’s Saturday Statues, I have two lions from Sofia, Bulgaria. If you recall, last week’s lions were from London.
The first lion sits besides The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for the Bulgarian soldiers who fell in the WWI. The lion is actually the national symbol of Bulgaria. It looks as if it’s guarding the tomb. That is the church of Sveta Sofia behind him, the oldest Christian church in Bulgaria.
This here is the Palace of Justice. I noticed there were two lions in front of the building too. Sorry to say my photograph is not very clear and only one lion is showing! I had no idea then that I would be blogging about statues.
