The Bell Tower

This Bell Tower was erected in close proximity to the Monument of the Holy Mother of God with donations from the community of Haskovo in 2010. A panoramic city view is revealed from the top of the 30 meter high Bell Tower. Eight electronically controlled bells, located beneath the bell tower, make the city resound with its bell music every day. An interesting fact is that part of the bells were made at the Bell Foundry in Plovdiv, founded in 1872 by the brothers Ivan and Lazar Veleganovi, who took part in the preparation of the April Uprising.
