Cultural tourism

World archeology became aware of the Thracians in 1851. Then a Thracian treasure was found near the village of Rozovets in the foothills of Sredna Gora. Among the items is a gold ring that is now part of the Louvre collection. The first Thracian tomb, which was completely uncovered in 1931, is located near the Svilengrad village of Mezek. The largest collection of Thracian trapezoidal niches is located in the area of ​​Gluhite kamani near Lyubimets. There are other similar finds around Mineralni Bani. From the Roman period, impressive sites remain in Plovdiv, Stara Zagora, Yambol. And this is only a very small part of the cultural and historical heritage of the area, among which shine places such as Yunatsite, Karanovo, Mal Tepe, Kabile, Paleokastro, Castra Rubra, Neutzikon. The connecting thread of the area is the river Maritsa, known in ancient times as Rhombus and Hebros. Its lower course before the delta was called Europe, which later gave the name to our entire continent. All this today is simply Thrace – the impressive tourist region of Bulgaria.
