Welcome to Grivitsa village!
The Romanian mausoleum was built in the period 1892-1897, in memory of the Romanian soldiers who died for the liberation of Bulgaria, with the funds of the Romanian people. It opened in 1902. The iconostasis and the murals in the temple were done by Romanian artists. In the area of the fortifications of Grivitsa, immediately after the war, were erected a total of 17 Russian and Romanian monuments over the graves of the soldiers who fought there. In 1958 was built a memorial park, and in 1967 was opened an exhibition which reflects the battles near Grivitsa village during the Russian-Turkish War and the battle route of the Romanian Army.
The exhibition is dedicated to Romania’s participation in the Russian-Turkish War of 1877-1878. Here you will witness the battles at Grivitsa village led by the Russian army at the beginning of the Pleven Epopee and the Romanian army during the third storming of Pleven from 11-12 September 1877. You will see original Romanian uniforms, copies of Romanian military flags and objects reflecting the rural life during the Russian-Turkish war.
