The Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari is situated 2.5 km southwest of the village of Sveshtari, which is located 42 km northeast of Razgrad. Since 1985 the Tomb of Sveshtari was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Discovered in 1982, the 3rd century BC Thracian tomb reflects the fundamental structural principles of Thracian cult buildings. The tomb's architectural decor is considered to be unique, with polychrome half-human, half-plant caryatids and painted murals. Ten female figures are carved in high relief on the walls of the central chamber and the decorations of the lunette in its vault are the only examples of this type found so far in the lands one inhabited by Thracians. It is recognized as a remarkable reminder of the culture of the Getae (also known as Dacians), a Thracian people who were in contact with the Hellenistic and Hyperborean worlds. Archeologists believe that this is the tomb of the Gatae ruler Drumihed.

The rich decoration and exact architecture emphasize the grandeur of his authority. Its dimensions are: length 7.5 m, width 6.5 m and height 4.5m.
