The house of Lieutenant General Kiril Botev


The historic significance of 23 Shipka Street in Sofia is tied to Lieutenant General Kiril Botev, a crucial figure in Bulgarian history. This cultural monument carries the legacy of the renowned Bulgarian revolutionary Hristo Botev. The property belonged to General Kiril Botev, the brother of Hristo Botev, and their mother, Ivanka Boteva, also resided here. While Hristo Botev’s legacy is widely celebrated, Kiril Botev’s contributions to Bulgaria’s military history are equally noteworthy, especially his military achievements post-Liberation.
