Monument 1000 years Haskovo
The “1000 Years Haskovo” Monument was built in 1985 on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of Haskovo. The project is of the sculptor Krum Damyanov and the architect Simeon Borisov. The monument is on the foundations of the Old Clock Tower of Haskovo, first revealed during the construction of the Aida Hotel in the 60s of the 20th century.
Monument “1000 Years Haskovo” is a modern clock tower with a height of 26.5 m. It consists of three equal parts, connected in a composition. The first part is made of granite tiles with ornaments, and in the middle of the floor there is a ritual stone marking the event. The second part is a complex of four sculptures of gray granite figures with a height of 6 m, placed on round steel columns. The third part is a clock with four dials with a diameter of 1.6 m and two bells driven by weights on the principle of old clocks. The clock mechanism is produced in Leipzig, Germany.
The monument symbolizes the four directions in the world, the transition to the new millennium and Haskovo as a crossroads between the East and the West.
