The Shipka Memorial Church is a masterpiece of church architecture; it has 17 bells that echo across the neighbouring hills during celebrations. The church is a part of an extensive complex that includes a monastery, a pilgrim’s base, an orphanage and an ecclesiastical seminary. The complex was completed in 1902; it is dedicated to the fallen heroes of the Ottoman-Russian War of 1877–1878. It is declared a cultural monument of national importance and it is included in the list of Bulgaria’s 100 touristic sites. Vassil Goranov won his first drawing contest at just four years of age. Later he graduated from the Painting programme at St Cyril and St Methodius University in the city of Veliko Tarnovo. With time Goranov outlined his artistic profile and his interest in the historical and military themes became apparent. The artist’s chosen style is historical romanticism, and his paintings ornate history textbooks and covers of scientific volumes.
