this place is near the village of shipka. when you travel, right after the entrance to the village, you take the left turn to the tomb. it costs something like 5 leva to walk inside for a guided tour and an interesting explanation. good.

If you look at the web pictures it looks amazing but in reality not so. Yes it is quaint but the admission price after you finally find it (directions to not well marked) you pay, for what you see a hefty entrance fee in basically a gift shop, in turn squeeze through a small awkward opening and yes the small,...

The replica of a Thracian Tomb in Kazanlak is certainly worth visiting. It is very authentic and illustrates how the interior of the domes may have been decorated. It is quite small inside, with room for only four people at a time. A visit to this replica should be accompanied with a visit to an actual tomb such as Shushmanets... More

Worth the visit. With its history, squeezing through the tight passageway of the tomb gives one a feel of the ancient rituals and practices.

This Thracian tomb is built to the exact specifications of the original. What is amazing is the acoustics in the tomb. We sang Alleluias to test the sound. It was really amazing. Lots of information on the walls just before you enter the tomb. Really enjoyed this shirt visit. Only four people can enter the tomb at the same time.... More

It is truly understandable that they closed the real tomb just a few meters futher but still. In the nearby valley you get the chance to step into the real tombs so in combination it is really a good visit. Beware of large groups, the thracian tombs are really small so only 4 persons can enter at the time. NOT... More

Nice if somewhat small sight. Nearby the Turkish restaurant Orient is definitely worth a visit . What a pleasant surprise.

The original tomb is hidden in a rather nondescript building. Only the signs make you aware of this. There is a copy of the tomb which is open to the public near by.
