Artist's Description

Memorial “To Heroes Of Plevna” or memorial “To Grenadiers Fallen By Plevna” is located in the park in the square at Ilyinskie Gates, not far from Polytechnical Museum.
In 1877 near the Bulgarian city of Plevna there was a historic battle between Russian army under the command of general Mikhail Scobelev and Turkish troops of Osman-pasha. The memorial chapel was built up at the cost of grenadiers’ donations in memory of comrades fallen by Plevna. The Chapel of Plevna was unveiled on 11th December, 1887 on the 10th anniversary of the heroic battle. After the October revolution the chapel was ravaged and closed. In December 1992 the chapel was given to the church. In 1998, by the 120th anniversary of emancipation of Bulgaria from the Osman Yoke, the memorial chapel was consecrated and opened again. Since then requiem for grenadiers is served on 10th of December annually at the renewed chapel with shining gold cross.
