About Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak

The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak is a late 4th Century BC burial site located in Bulgaria and forms part of the ancient Thracian settlement of Seuthopolis.

The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak is perhaps best known for its incredibly well preserved examples of Thracian artwork, including wall frescoes and murals. Discovered in the mid-20th Century, the tomb site is one element of a larger Thracian necropolis which contains seven brick tombs.

To ensure continued conservation, access to the original tomb is limited, however visitors can explore a recreation of the tomb located nearby. Information about the history of the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak is available on site in both English and Bulgarian.

The site is one of a number of Thracian tombs found in the area, and many of the artefacts from this site and others can be found on display in Kazanlak Museum.

The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak was declared a UNESCO World Heritage historic site in 1979 and is one of our Top Ten Visitor Attractions of Bulgaria.
