01Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari

Located in a UNESCO-protected Thracian settlement in The Danube and Northern Plains, the Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari is an almost-perfectly preserved three-chamber burial tomb dating from around 300 BCE. The discovery of this historic tomb was as recent as 1982. The monument is highly-decorated with unique décor and exquisitely painted murals, showcasing the Thracians’ architectural principles. Make sure you check out the decoration of the lunette in the vault and the ten female figures carved in high relief on the walls. There are no other such excellent examples of carvings in the Thracian lands.
