Over the weekend, Sasha and I took the girls up the mountain a little bit to a place called "Kambanite."  It is a monument set up during the 1970's that contains bells from around the world.  It was interesting to see what countries contributed to this monument.  Some nations contributed massive beautiful bells.  Others contributed tiny intricate bells.  Still others had bells that looked like they came off a scuttled old ship.

Some of the countries represented no longer exist.  Some contributions were obviously added after the fall of communism (such as the NATO bell).

It is a unique monument.  I have never seen anything quite like it.

The main bell tower can be seen from miles away.

Some bells were large enough to fit a grown man.

Bulgaria's Bell was one of the biggest.
