"Shipka" Street starts at Vasil Levski Blvd. just against each National Academy cross "Krakra" St., "San Stefano" St., "Vasil Aprilov" St., "Professor Zlatarov" St. and "Evlogy and Hristo Georgiev "where the street reaches the endpoint.
The street was named in 1883 after a summit with the same name in the Balkan Mountains. Here in 1877 bloody battles between the defenders of the mountain pass by Shipka at one side and the army of Sjuleiman Pasha at the other side took place.
