Lyre - Kardzhali, Picture

  Orpheus, the mythical king of the Thracians, the son of God Eagar (Apollo) and the nymph Calliope. His life is strewn with many legends and stories about his willingness to learn Thracians peace to his tragic love that contributed to his death, but - are vividly highlighted his talent as a musician and singer. Orpheus had miraculous lyre with seven strings. When we play and sing, the birds fall silent, forest beasts lie down meekly at his feet, the wind stops blowing, to hear his unearthly voice Across the Rhodopes.

   According to some sources, Orpheus was born and lived on the territory of present-day town of Kardzhali. And as appropriate, the townspeople are very proud of that. For several years the city visitors are greeted by a majestic statue of the mythical singer, since 2006 the city is decorated by magnificent sculpture called "The Lyre of Orpheus". The author is sculptor Ziyatin Nuriev. Located near the town's bus station and occupies space in the middle of roundabouts, which viewed in the abstract, can be defined as a place where the roads merge and form eternal and infinite. Lyre up to 9 feet wide and about 14 meters Made of stainless steel, which captures sunlight and dispersing them thousands of small light glare that seemed to dance floor elusive for people Orpheus sounds. Surrounding soil is refined with green grass and beautiful flowers, reminiscent of the beauty of the Rhodope Mountains. Towering high above the people, like the portal of worlds and creates the illusion that if you go below it will move into an ancient world disappeared under the pressure of the civilization of the Thracians world.

Evening momumentalnata sculpture is illuminated and looks fabulous.

   "Lyre" is one of the symbols of Kardzhali and a favorite spot for photos as guests of the city, residents and meat.
