The tomb in the village of Sveshtari – the unique monument of Thracian culture
The Thracian tomb was discovered in 1982 during the excavation of the high Gina mound (Mound №7 from the Eastern mound necropolis of Sboryanovo) near the village and this makes it one of the most sensational discoveries of the last century. What distinguishes the Sveshtari tomb from all the others is the fact that after it was excavated and studied, a chamber was built around it, which was buried. Thus, visitors have the opportunity to go around the outer part of the tomb and see its outer walls. No other tomb in our country offers this.Scholars believe that this is the last home of Dromichet – the king of the Getae tribe, which inhabited the lands in the region. Two stone beds, human remains and grave goods were found in the burial chamber. The stone beds are decorated with ornaments depicting religious scenes of deification. The human bones belonged to three people. Some belong to a man, about 36 years old, probably a Goth ruler, others to a 25-year-old woman, probably his wife, who was to accompany him to the afterlife. The other remains are partial, historians suggest they are related to the king and were laid to rest later.On the semicircular wall under the arch of the tomb chamber, the ritual of heroization (deification) of the late ruler is depicted by drawing. The king is presented on horseback and is followed by two gunners. Opposite him stood a goddess, with four other women behind her, carrying gifts in their hands. The goddess is dressed in a long robe and presents the late ruler with a wreath of gold.

Topkapi Palace, which was established on an area of 700,000 square meters on the East Roman acropolis in Sarayburnu, was the administration, education and art center of the empire for about four hundred years, from Fatih Sultan Mehmet to the 31st Sultan Sultan Abdulmecid; It was also the home of the sultans. Topkapı Palace, which was abandoned with the dynasty’s moving to Dolmabahçe Palace from the middle of the 19th century, has preserved its historical importance and value.
