Thracians, who were very enigmatic and interesting, conquered contemporary Bulgaria thousands of years ago, following in the footsteps of the Thracians. We still know very little about ancient civilization, and new discoveries often change our minds: for example, we thought the Thracians were barbarians until we uncovered traces of a written language! Throughout the twentieth century, many spectacular Thracian temples, villages, and tombs were unearthed in different parts of the country. Perperikon, the city of Gods, and the UNESCO-listed tombs of Kazanlak and Sveshtari deserve special attention.
