Perperikon Tour (2 Days)

 Plovdiv, Perperikon and Starosel - Discover Thracia

Area Overview

Thracia valley. Thrakia is a region and ancient country of the southeast Balkan Peninsula north of the Aegean Sea. In ancient times it extended as far north as the Danube River. The region was colonized by Greeks in the seventh century b.c. and later passed under the control of Rome, Byzantium, and Ottoman Turkey. Northern Thrace was annexed by Bulgaria in 1885, and eastern Thrace passed to Turkey in 1923.

Thracia or Trakia in Bulgarian is a name of a region in Bulgaria, a Roman province in the 1st century AD. The name comes from a great tribe that occupied Bulgarian lands 300-400 years BC and left an absolutely rich historical and religious heritage. The Thracian people were warlike people with a strong cult for the Horseman (Madara Horseman UNESCO), some of them are well known such as Spartacus, Orpheus and Justinian The Great - all of them born in Thrakia.
