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.

I visited the place with other European tour operators. The place worst a visit, but do not expect too much historical evidences and stories. A guide is needed in order to understand the facts and the history.

So I have taken the ferry at Călăraşi to go to from Romania to Bulgaria and I went on some amazing roads, not highways but the typical scenic roads going over the beautiful hills, through deep forests to the place I need to be. There... More

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!
