We rented a car and drove from Veliko Tarnovo. The road was fine and the trip an easy one. Even with our GPS we had a hard time getting from the small town Sveshtari to the Tomb, there were no signs in either English or...More

This tomb is real, it is from the 3rd century BC, and it is where it was when discovered under a mound of dirt. It is presented as found and is still standing. The carvings of the 10 women inside are delightful. The construction and...More

It's a bit of a challenge to reach this site, as it's in a remote location (country roads that are full of potholes) and the signage is negligible. But it well worth the effort; it was a highlight of our 2 week vacation. Tours are...More

We were the only people here during our visit, so we had a tour on our own. The guide was very professional, knowledgeable and informative. The tomb is perfectly preserved and is just incredible; without doubt it was the highlight of our tour around Bulgaria.

To reach this necropolis you have to drive in a country road, as the site is not near a big city, so you have to go there. But this place definitely deserves a visit. The king's tomb is air-conditioned and the time of the visit...More

I was truly fascinated from this attraction. It is a mix between modernist and ancient authentic Tomb. It's is one of the most impressive tombs in Bulgaria. It is located nearby Isperih town but you will need a car to reach the Tomb.

This site definitely adds to our visit of Bulgaria. The site is well preserved and is worth a visit, even if you have to reach it over bad roads and have to endure reckless drivers.

An excellent English-speaking guide took us to three sites in the complex of ancient ruins. I highly recommend you get a guide. The Tomb of Sveshtari was breathtaking. The female caryatids are exquisite. The tomb is maintained at a constant temperature and humidity. The figures...More
