Situated right in the geographical centre of Bulgaria, this is an area that abounds in archaeological finds.
Most of them date back to the times of a group of mysterious tribes, the Thracians, that inhabited these lands before the Romans came to conquer and amalgamate them into what was the first European empire. Tombs, gold, frescoes are all yours to explore. There is even a whole Thracian city nearby, but you can't visit because it was submerged in a reservoir at a time when hydromelioration was seen as more important than culture.
