map The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak

The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak is a vaulted brickwork "beehive" (tholos) tomb near the town of Kazanlak in central Bulgaria. The tomb is part of a large Thracian necropolis - Seuthopolis. The monument dates back to the 4th century BC and has been on the UNESCO protected World Heritage Site list since 1979.

It comprises a narrow corridor and a round burial chamber, both decorated with murals representing a Thracian couple at a ritual funeral feast. The murals are memorable for the splendid horses and especially for the gesture of farewell, in which the seated couple grasp each other's wrists in a moment of tenderness and equality. The paintings are Bulgaria's best-preserved artistic masterpieces from the Hellenistic period.
