It is here that archaeologists believe they have found the tomb of the greatest Thracian king, Seuthes III. Next, you will explore the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, impressive for its unique frescoes dating back to the 4th-century. The exceptionally well-preserved frescoes and the condition of the original structure reveal the high level of culture and pictorial art in Hellenistic Thrace.
