The Stone City of Perperikon is one of the most fascinating archeological complexes in Bulgaria. Our tour gives you a first-hand account of its excavation from one of the archeologists who discovered it. First inhabited in the 6th millennium BC, it grew into a prolific city under the rulership of the ancient Thracians. It was continuously inhabited by many cultures over the centuries, until its eventual destruction at the hands of the invading Ottoman turks. The stone city was rediscovered and excavated at the turn of the century, and it is now open to the public. Visitors can walk through its very streets and see the remains of tombs, buildinds, forts and sacred structures belonging to multiple time periods.
