Photographer's Note

One of the most beautiful and impressive churches in Sofia was built in 1912 as an expression of gratitude of the Bulgarian people for the remarkable self sacrifice of the 200 000 Russian soldiers who by their unprecedented valour, resolution and boundless fraternal love, at the price of their blood and life, in the Russo-Turkish Liberation War (1877-1878) broke the chains of the nearly five century Ottoman bondage and gave the people their priceless freedom.
