    Bulgaria, Kazanluk Tomb
    4 more images

    This Thracian tomb was found by accident in 1944, during the WWII. It was build for an unknown Thracian king and his wife in 4-3 century B.C. The tomb was robbed in the ancient times already but because of its architecture and especially of its painting the Kazanluk tomb is included into the UNESCO Word's Heritage List.
    The tomb is located within walking distance from the city centre. There is a copy of the original tomb. The original tomb can be visited up to 30 persons a day, so I'd recommend you to go there during the week ( the key is in the Ethnographical museum, so go there first). The copy is opened for visitors 9-18h, entrance fee: 3lv, a tax for taking pictures: 5lv. The entrance fee for the original: 20lv.

    The Monument Buzludza

    In the countryside called Buzludza in 1891 was carried out the first meeting of Bulgarian social-democratic party. On the peak (see the photo) after 1944 was built a Monument. Now it's abandoned and nobody could enter in. You can travel 20 km by car to the countryside and see The Monument from the outside.
