Monument “Thracian Woman”

Kazanlak’s association with the ancient Greeks became the focus of attention when a 4th century-BCE tomb of a Thracian ruler was discovered nearby in the former Thracian capital of Seuthopolis. The burial chamber was discovered in 1944 during the construction of a bomb shelter and was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979.
