Silistra Tomb is now available for tourists after preliminary registration at Regional Museum of History
Monday, May 27, 2019
The Silistra tomb is almost unknown in Bulgaria, although it is the first registered national monument of culture in Bulgaria in 1948. The tomb is little known because of the fact that until tourist visits were not allowed because of moisture that destroys the frescoes. However, a new air-conditioning system allows the site to be visited after a preliminary request at the Regional Museum of History. The Silistra tomb is unique with its frescoes. The images represent geometric, animal and human figures, hunting and family scenes. Their style is in the traditions of Hellenic culture and carries the characteristic features of the time of Roman emperor Constantine. The archaeological monument was discovered by chance in 1942 on the southern outskirts of Silistra, where the ancient necropolis of Durostorum, one of the most significant Roman cities of the Lower Danube in 2-6th century, was found. The rich mural decoration suggests that this was the tomb of a notable Roman. One can see the noble man and his wife depicted next to nine servants, as well as a couple of pigeons and peacocks drinking the water of eternal life from a large vase. The frescoes suggest that the patrician was a pagan in times marking the end of paganism and the birth of Christianity.
