Thracian Tombs Tour in the Valley of the Thracian Kings

The Thracian tombs and sanctuaries are the only almost entirely preserved representatives of the monumental cult architecture of the ancient Thracians. The main merit of their preservation to this day is that almost all of them are buried in tombstones. There are over 60,000 Thracian mounds on the territory of Bulgaria, of which only about 1000 are surveyed.

We offer you to embark on a fascinating journey through the most sacred shrines of the ancient Thracians and to tour 6 tombs with amazing stories!!! Expect an incredible journey back in time in the Thracian era and their sacred world, beliefs and traditions, customs and history of the great kings!
