David’s Been Here is touring all the top sites and best day trips around the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv. In this short video, David brings us an hour outside of Plovdiv to the small village of Starosel. Home to an ancient Thracian temple complex, this small yet impressive royal mausoleum dates all the way back to the 5th century BC. Open daily, visitors can explore the Chetinyova Mogila Temple, Horizon Temple and grave remnants of an ancient Thracian ruler, just recently discovered in 2000. If you’re interested in ancient history and are looking for a nice half-day visit, Starosel’s Thracian Temple Complex is a must.
