A unique removal of a 2,600-year Thracian tomb was carried out in the town of Borovo, near the city of Russe.

Archeologists decided on the transfer to the center of Borovo to save the ancient tomb from forays.

The Thracian stone-made building, dated IV-III century B.C., was unearthed in 1995, along with a splendid silver treasure. A copy of it will be also exhibited in a new archeological centre to be built up in Borovo.
