The Madara Rider

The Madara Rider
map The Madara Rider

The Madara Rider (Madarski konnik) is a large rock relief carved on the Madara Plateau east of Shumen in northeastern Bulgaria. The relief depicts a majestic horseman 23 m above ground level in an almost vertical 100-metre-high cliff. The horseman is thrusting a spear into a lion lying at his horse's feet. An eagle is flying in front of the horseman and a dog runs after him.

The monument is usually attributed to the ancient Bulgars, a nomadic tribe of warriors which settled in northeastern Bulgaria at the end of the 7th century AD and after merging with the local Slavic and Thracian tribes gave origin to the modern Bulgarians.

The monument is dated back to 710 AD and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979.
