The Bell Tower in the town of Haskovo

In the summer of 2010, next to the Monument of Virgin Mary in the city of Haskovo, the edifice of the Belfry was built up. In years of spiritual poverty and skepticism, Haskovo residents have once again gave way to their - let us say - Renaissance creative drive! It took nearly half a million Bulgarian leva to build this enlightening Christian monument and, please note the fact that all the funding was collected in less than a year entirely from donations!
 

Rising to nearly thirty meters, the Belfry next to the Virgin Mary Monument in the city of Haskovo, is one of the highest on the Balkan Peninsula. On top of it there are eight bells of varying size and total weight little over one tonne.
 

The Belfry is open to visitors every day and due to the breathtaking views it offers from the top, it has been quickly beloved as a favorite destination of both residents and guest of the city of Haskovo.
 

...
 

And now, every day at noontime, the bell tolling echoes throughout Haskovo, as if recalling the city’s role as a gate of Christianity in Europe.
