Bulgaria's Top Thracian Treasure Will Boost Investment

Source: Sofia News Agency (
Published Date: 16 Apr 2012

High-ranking Bulgarian statespersons attended Monday the first-ever display of the world famous Panagurishte Thracian Treasure in the town near which it was found.

The treasure was uncovered by three local brothers near central Bulgarian town of Panagurishte in 1949, and has since made world renown as one of the top works of art of the Thracian civilization.

"Today's return of the treasure to Panagurishte is an investment in our nation's self-esteem. It is certain to draw in interest," stated Bulgarian Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism Delyan Dobrev at the official event.

The Panagurishte History Museum built a special safety display room, where the treasure will be on exhibit through May 16.

Bulgarian Minister of Interior Tsvetan Tsvetanov, who was also present at the event, said that all security measures had been taken for the storage of the gold pieces in Panagurishte.

It has been decided that in the future the treasure, which is owned by Bulgaria's National History Museum in capital Sofia and is usually on traveling exhibits around the globe, will stay for a month in Panagyurishte each year.
