The Thracian tombs near Kazanlak are not just a replica or a single tomb, but a large number of tombs spread around the area. The main one is near Shipka and has a good display in 3 or 4 languages and shows the stone construction. Its a bit like a mini pyramid. You can arrange private tours from here to... More

There is to be seen a copy of the tomb and it is maybe interesting for archeologists but that's it. The rest of the city is relaxed but not that interesting

No access to the real tomb, only the copy. And the explanations in the copy are misleading and uninformative. Better do the virtual tour online.

Drove a fair distance to see this famous place and after walking up hill to the tomb - is closed. Looks fairly permanent. A sign says original tomb. Another sign says copy and an arrow pointing to a bunker. Ok it may be a good "copy" but who knows if you can't see the original. It's like walking into the... More

Near the city called Kazanlak (which is a boring industrial city), close to the road to the Shipka pass, there is an ancient Thracian tomb of a Thracian King, alongside of other Thracian tombs. You need a car to get to the tomb – but if you are travelling in the area, I recommend you stop and see this tomb,... More

The tomb first of all is extremely small - even with close inspection you will not spend more than 3 minutes to examine the tomb and perhaps another 5-10 minutes to visit the small exposition of recovered artifacts from the tomb. There are two options - a visit to a museum and a reconstruction of the tomb for 2Lv, or... More

The Tomb of Seuthus III Just outside Kazanlak, along the road to the Shipka pass, lies the tomb now thought to belong to Thracian King, Seuthus III. From the outside the tomb looks little more than a large mole hill covered in grass. In fact all over the flat valley bottom, there are mounds just like this, some large, some... More
