Thracian Tomb of Kazanlâk information
In hilly Tyulbe Park, just up from the Kulata Ethnological Complex, is a very large and very locked tomb: built in the 4th century BC for a Thracian ruler, it was discovered in 1944 during a bomb shelter construction, and is now a Unesco World Heritage site.
Along the dromos (vaulted entry corridor), a double frieze depicts battle scenes. The burial chamber is 12m in diameter, and covered by a beehive dome typical of Thracian 3rd to 5th centuries BC design. The dome's murals depict events such as a funeral feast and chariot race.
