We stopped here as part of our travels in Bulgaria. Amazing!!! Such history and well preserved artifacts. Hard to find on your own. Hire a guide or do as part of a tour.

Almost 2500 years old, the Thracian tomb is well preserved. It's astonishing, beautiful, and breathtaking! There is a lot to see, unbelievable! We all gasped in front of the Thracian craftsmanship, and I would highly recommend you that experience!
