  • ... a very remarkable place where there is no way can pass. For people who are less knowledgeable regarding ancient remains, probably as a visit object to only recommend if you are in the area anyway. A relatively small investment which its fame probably also therefore refers to that architectural legacies of the Thracian not en-masse exist. I'm sure the object is but erfeulich, because the excavations show that culture was not exclusively Greek monopoly (or is still cooking!), but that already in the ancient more numerous people - here: THRACIANS, Illyrians - European cultural production were, and were able to build impressive. To demonstrate this, you would have need to begin earlier with the digging...

  • You will be immersed in history at this temple. It can't be described, it must be seen. There are some well-preserved parts, and it is simple but nicely displayed. Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • Scattered among low hills in the heart of Bulgaria, these ancient Thracian archaeological sites. Edit a visit for the authentic atmosphere that you breathe and the expressiveness of forms of small temples and the tombs excavated and open to visitors. Don't expect anything great, but small places gathered to great effect. There is a single ticket to visit all sites are different and spread within a few km, but those who deserve are 3. Deserves, in area, a stop at the tourist complex of Starosel with hotel, restaurant and SPA.

  • As a personal opinion the small temple which was discovered about a kilometer before that one is more interesting. A bit strange is why no more works are going on in case there is a wall surrounding the whole hill and the temple is just a small part in the front. You can leave the car on the parking down next to the road or drive up almost next to the temple where there is also a place to park. Inside there is a photo exhibition telling the story of the temple and the works done as well as the other Thracian graves and temples discovered in the so called Valley of the Thracian kings.
  • Nothing so special if you are not interested in archeology - just a chamber inside a hill. The view from above is nice.
  • There isn't that much to see from the ruin​s but it's on a very beautiful place with lots of views. I really enjoyed the walk.
  • Awe inspiring thracian sanctuary.
  • Very interesting temple with great history. Used by the Thracian in 5th and 4th century B.C.
