Yambol School Named after Hristo Smirnenski With Statue


Hristo Smirnenski has a school named after him in Yambol. this is the statue that stands in the school grounds. He a Bulgarian poet and prose writer who wrote thousands of pieces of poetry and prose in various genres using more than 70 pseudonyms. An interesting trivia is Smirnenski Point on Robert Island, South Shetland Islands is also named after him. He died young at only 25 years old form tuberculosis. Why do all great artists die young?

I don't know, it is such a shame they die so young. Very creative tribute and statue. I also like the trees and greenery surrounding it.
