#LonelyPlanet writer, Anita Isalska (@lunarsynthesis), is currently on the road in #Shipka, #Bulgaria, where she snapped this shot of the stunning Nativity Memorial Church also known as the Church of St Nikolai. The splendid, onion-shaped golden domes of the church can be seen from afar, glittering from amidst thick woods above the village, framed against the mountain. The magnificent structure was built in 1902 as a dedication to soldiers who died at the Shipka Pass during the Russo-Turkish War (1877–78). The design is heavily influenced by Russian architecture, and features five golden domes and 17 church bells that can be heard for several kilometres when rung. Inside the crypt Russian soldiers who perished are interred, and there are some wonderful frescoes depicting scenes from Russian history. #travel #LPInBulgaria Hotels-live.com via www.instagram.com/p/BFva4j6KTfa/ by www.facebook.com/125048940862168/photos/a.935815429785511... via http://flic.kr/p/HqAgAK #link https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7702/27188909675_81119caa1b.jpg
