and The Bell Tower in the town of Haskovo,Bulgaria
"Rising to nearly thirty meters, the Belfry next to the Virgin Mary Monument in the city of Haskovo, is one of the highest on the Balkan Peninsula. On top of it there are eight bells of varying size and total weight little over one tonne....
And now, every day at noontime, the bell tolling echoes throughout Haskovo, as if recalling the city's role as a gate of Christianity in Europe."
