Pleven Panorama and City

Beyond Bucurest the next stop of my romp through Romania and Bulgaria was Pleven were I visited the excellent Panorama, plus the city in general with its many monuments to the the Battle of Pleven. Here are pictures from the panorama, but also the city and Historical Museum in general. The Panorama was great, but the souvenir shop was closed. The National Historical Museum had an excellent collection on the war, but photos were prohibited and the souvenir shop was poor. Both were cheap. I could not find a place that sold good military history books in the city which was a shame.

Here is a video I did of the surviving Ottoman redoubt and the Panorama
