    More Thracian Tombs

    The area around Kazanluk is dotted with mounts which hold Thracian tombs. Not all of them are open for public and none of those which are, have those splendid decorations like the one in Kazanluk. I've visited the Golyama Kosmatka tomb, one of the largest in the area. It was built for a Thracian king from the 5th century BC and lots of golden artefacts have been found here. Unfortunately none of it is shown in the tomb, but in other museums in Bulgaria.
    Admission is 3BGN

    Lion’s fountain

    Bulgaria, Lion���s fountain
    1 more image

    One of the Kazanluk landmarks. The original idea for its construction belongs to Ivan T. Patev and dates from 1893. To find money for its builing he wrote a letter to the Bulgarian Knjaz Ferdinand Saxe-Coburt-Gotha explaining his whish to build a fontain in his honor. Clever, right?
    The fontain's desing was made by Florentine Sculptor Arnold Dzoki, an Italian architect who was also the architect of the Statue of Tzar Liberator in Sofia (in front of the Parliament) and of the Monument of Liberation in the town of Russe.
