WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?
Tucked in a corner in northeastern Bulgaria, a location somewhat off the beaten tourist track, lies one of this country's most remarkable archaeological sites.
It is a tomb, possibly belonging to a king, elaborately decorated with frescoes and sculptures of women. Made of limestone, the women have disproportionate bodies, intricately carved dresses and sturdy faces with wide-opened eyes, which mesmerise. Discovered in 1982, these are without a match in the ancient world of the Thracians. In 1985 UNESCO inscribed the site on its World Heritage List.
