The monument dates back to the 4th century BCE and has been on the UNESCO protected World Heritage Site list since 1979. The tomb is situated near the ancient Thracian capital of Seuthopolis in a region where more than a thousand tombs of kings and members of the Thracian aristocracy can be found. To preserve the sensitive paintings, the tomb... More

I like Thracian art very much, especially all the tombs left, but this one was one of the first to be discovered, and with the grates reflection to Thracian history, as back in 1979 it was inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage List. It is smaller, compared to the other Thracian tombs, even in the surroundings in the Valley of... More

Glad we called in but this one is more for keen historians Visual impact is limited because of the smallness of the tomb & really you only need 15 mins to take in the attraction You don't get to see the original only a reproduction

This place is definitely worth a visit. There are many ancient tombs scrambled around the beautiful city of Kazanlak. It really is incredible. By the way - the current main picture up on tripadvisor is not the Kazanlak tomb, it is the Koprinka tomb, about 5km from Kazanlak. Both places are magical.

The tomb is small but it offers very interesting experience. Nowadays tourists are visiting a replica of the original tomb. Keep in kind that only 4 people are allowed to enter it in the same time so you mind need to wait for a couple of minutes. The guides are nice and very friendly. I highly recommend you to talk...

This was literally the smallest UNESCO inscribed site I have seen. The actual tomb is probably not bigger than 30 square meter. The tomb of which we saw a replica since the real one is closed off for visitors, is very small but impressive nonetheless. Beautifuly painted walls give a idea how skillful the Thracians of old were. These tombs... More

There are several Thracian Tombs in Kazanlak Region,One of the oldest societies in Europe,Great craftsmen, Goldsmiths, Burial Tombs were filled with plenty of goods that needed for the nobles life across..Sometimes they were buried with their servants and War horse. Most of the discovered artefacts are exhibited at Kazanlak History Museum

Well worth visiting. You see a replica of the tomb rather than the original which is encased and preserved next door. Apparently you can visit other tombs by prior arrangement.

The Thracian tomb of Kazanlak is a unique aesthetic and artistic work, a masterpiece of the Thracian creative spirit. Discovered in 1942 is UNESCO Heritage: unfortunately, in order to preserve it, you can't visit the original, but only the copy: and this is the reason of my "low" rating. This wasn't mentioned in our tourist guide and we were quite... More
