The Harbinger Complex

Located at the foot of the Balkan, the complex includes a tourist house, known as the Mountain Hut, and the monument of the Harbinger of Freedom. The Hut is accessible by 463 stone steps starting at the centre of Vratsa. It was completed in 1926 thanks to the local population’s voluntary work. Adjacent to it is the Harbinger of Freedom monument, where each Sunday you can hear the sounds of a military horn, a reenactment of the signal the Russian soldier Petlak gave on 9th November 1877 to announce the liberation of Vratsa.
