Kazanlak Thracian tomb

The Thracian tomb of Kazanlak is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. It is the best preserved example of Thracian art and life from the late Hellenistic period. Unfortunately, the original tomb is permanently closed. Only the copy can be viewed by visitors.

The Thracian tomb of Kazanlak offers a very poor travel experience. Not only will you be limited to viewing a copy of the actual tomb which is built 50 metres away from the original. Inside the copy the commentaries available for the public are misleading. The official guided tour is limited to a list of uninteresting facts presented in front of a picture at the entrance of the copy of the tomb.

In summary you will be given wrong information in front of a picture placed in front of the copy of the Thracian tomb. Save your time and money. It is not worth visiting the Thracian tomb of Kazanlak if you do not have the right information about the Thracians. You are better off first enjoying an interesting virtual tour online from the comfort of your armchair and then you can visit the tomb to get a feeling for the space.
