The statue stands right in front of the Parliament House a few hundred meters both from the Metro and from St. Alexandar Nevski. Interesting piece of history.
This statue is facing the Bulgarian parliament, so if you are on a sight seeing tour you can't miss it. Next to it you can see the Bulgarian academy of science and near it it is the cathedral Alexander Nevsky.
