Introduction

Located near the village of Sveshtari in Razgrad Province is an amazing Thracian Tomb. Only found in 1982 this 3rd century BC tomb has the fundamental structural principles of a Thracian cult building. The decor of the tomb is considered unique with polychrome half human and half plant caryatids with painted murals. A great feature is the ten female carvings in high relief on the walls of the main central chamber. This is a great example of pre Greek, Persian or Roman cultures in Bulgaria. The Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari is considered an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
