Armenian Monument Opened in Bulgaria's General Toshevo
The Armenian Union in Bulgaria and the Ovsepyan family donated to Bulgaria's northeastern town of General Toshevo a monument of the Russian Emperor, Alexander II.
The monument, dedicated to the Russian Emperor, known also as Tsar Liberator, is located on the square in front of the Town Hall building.
The ceremony was attended by the Russian Federation Consul in the Black Sea city of Varna, Anatoly Shelkunov, metropolitan Kirl, the Head Secretary of the Armenian Union, Takvor Vardanyan, and the donor, Arutuyn Ovsepyan.
The monument is 4-meter tall and is made in the traditional Armenian artistic style of carving crosses on stone "Hachkar". The material, volcanic stone, is also typical, and is the one used for the central square in the capital, Erevan.
The Armenian sculptor has carved it in one year and for months from one single stone piece.
This is the third monument in Bulgaria, donated by the Ovsepyan family.
