Kazanlak Tomb

This tomb, located in the romantic Valley of Roses, near the town of Kazanlak, was built for a wealthy Thracian ruler in the 4th century B.C. It is located near Seutopolis, the capital city of the Thracian king Seutes III, and is part of a large Thracian necropolis. The tholos has a narrow corridor and a round burial chamber, both decorated with murals representing Thracian burial rituals and culture. The perfectly preserved murals are a unique testimony of pictorial art during the Hellenic period. The artist has conveyed both the rites of a bural feast, and the inner state of the figures in a talented and realistic way.
