The Thracian golden and silver treasures are part of the most famous Bulgarian historical and cultural heritage. These treasures are unique in their variety of shapes, figures and details.
Bulgaria is among Europe’s earliest inhabited areas and the Thracians are among the first settlers in the Bulgarian lands. The Thracian civilization is evidenced by the numerous archaeological finds, uncovered tombs and treasures.
The Thracians believed in life after death. The Thracian kings and nobility were buried in monumental stone tombs together with their weapons, jewellery and even horses.
Places for funeral rites honoring the deceased rulers, the imposing tombs also served as temples featuring grandiose sculptural and artistic decoration – Kazanluk and Sveshtari tombs (UNESCO Heritage sites). Excavations have revealed charming paintings and carved furnishings in the tombs chambers.
More than 40 amazing burial tombs have been discovered in Thracian mounds in Bulgaria up to the present – evidence of Thracian funeral rites and burial services.
