Nowadays there are 33 panoramas all over the world. One of them with the biggest dimensions is constructed in Pleven
and was officially unveiled on 10 December 1977.
The memorial is devoted to to five-months battles of Russian army during the Russian-Turkish war 1877-78 as a result of which Bulgaria
was liberated from the 500 years of Ottoman yoke. The Pleven Epopee 1877 Panorama
depicts these events combining painting, plastics and architecture in a whole art work. The combination of the canvas (115/15m), the foreground (12m) and the illumination creates a feeling of authenticity and empathy to the battle fought on 11 September 1877.Working time of Pleven Panorama
