Directions to The Kazanlak Tomb
The Kazanlak Tomb is located on the outskirts of Kazanlak, the capital of the Rose Valley of Bulgaria. Kazanalak is on the 'Podbalkanskata' line from Sofia to Burgas and therefore can be easily reached by car, train or coach. Train would probably be the cheapest means of getting there but generally it takes longer. Kazanlak tomb was built on top of a hill in nowadays Tyulbeto Park area, short walk from the Railway station. There are quite a few steps to climb but the trees around provide shade and protection and make it a pleasant walk even during the hot summer.
The original tomb is closed for mass visitors in order to preserve the priceless murals and maintain the special air temperature and humidity they require. It can be opened at request for extra fee (BGN 20). There is an exact replica of Kazanlak tomb built just next to the original. You can see here in detail the architectural structure of the original tomb and the remarkable copies of the murals. It is open from 9 am till 5:30 pm and the entrance fee is 4 leva. There is a well stocked gift shop next to the tomb selling souvenirs and gift items.
Kazanlak offers a good number of hotels, guest houses and restaurants should you decide to stay and spend more time here and there is definitely a lot to see especially if you come during the Rose Festival.
