Thracian Beehive Tomb of Kazanlak

The Thracian Beehive Tomb of Kazanlak dating back to the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 3rd century BC attests to the contribution of Thracian people to the world cultural treasury. The beehive tomb is the most ancient to be found in Europe. The frescoes in the burial chamber and in the corridor are of extreme artistic value and the tomb is unrivaled in Europe for its preserved mural paintings. Quite unforgettable and unique scenes are painted on the walls of the burial chamber, revealing the burial feast and people accompanying the ruler to his last resting place with three hearses. This masterpiece with painted funeral rites, the building technique, the architectural design, and the decoration, provide evidence that Thracian rulers believed in immortality.
