Memorial near Gara Lakatnik, Bulgaria

A last picture from that rock face in Gara Lakatnik, from my first visit in January 2009. This time we can see the summit cross on of the protruding rocks and the memorial, the main attraction of that site.
The memorial remembers the ‚Bulgarian coup d’├ętat of September 1944‘, when the Bulgarian kingdom was overthrown with the help of the help of the Red Army, which finally led to Bulgaria joining the soviet block.
