THE KRALEVO TREASURE

In 1979, archaeologists digging near the village of Kralevo unearthed a tomb dated from the end of the 4th century BC. In addition to gold and silver jewellery, the finding comprised the only complete gold horse-trappings ever found in Bulgaria.

The gold horse's harness consists of a gold head-piece in the form of an aquiline head, a rosette, four appliqués representing the ancient hero Heracles, two rectangular appliqués with images of griffins and 36 small gold appliqués decorated with floral and geometric motifs.
