Description

The energy of the Earth is all around us and one can draw from it in a variety of places. Death is not an end, but a transition to other dimensions – this is what the Thracians strongly believe, so their funerals are a holiday. A feast celebrating the cycle in nature. Preparing for another, better life. The Thracian cult complex Starosel is an archaeological sensation worldwide. Why Roman empire conquered Thracians you will feel on yourself. Built around a rich thermal mineral springs during the period IV-VI century, Diocletianopolis was not only a water treatment center, but also an important Christian city – the seat of a bishop. At that time, a remarkable church construction developed in the city. Diocletianopolis is one of the few Roman cities in Bulgaria where such a large number of early Christian cult buildings were built. In Hisarya were discovered and studied 9 early Christian basilicas. Of these, only 3 are exhibited and available to visit. The basilicas in Hisarya reflect the overall development of early Christian basilica architecture during the period IV – VI century. In antiquity, as well as today, mineral springs were one of the busiest places. Many people gathered around them, who with delight and in slow sips sipped the healing elixir. As early as the middle of the 2nd century at today's spring 'Maiden Tear' began the construction of a large Roman bath with nymphaeum (sanctuary of nymphs). The pure nature, mineral springs and historically preserved buildings will make you look at yourself and the surrounding world with new strength and inspiration. Don't put it off, life is a moment.
