Visit one of the new discovered Thracian tombs and enjoy the famous Bulgarian wine.
We might start our one-day tour by visiting the enormous temple of the Thracian ruler Sitalkes I (the first king of a combined Thracian empire) which was found in 2000 near Starosel Village (39 km north of Plovdiv). After the visit of the archeological complex we will enjoy our lunch and the wonderful Bulgarian wine in the Wine Cellar ,,Starosel.
Then we will direct towards the balneological and ancient town of Hissar (40km north of Plovdiv).
Hissar is an old settlement which took shape in Roman times. There we will see the Hissar Fortress that has the shape of an irregular tetragon with an area of 300 decares and the Hissar tomb which is a late-Roman (4 th century) family tomb, consisting of an overarched passage. Another interesting sights are: the Banski buildings (baths), the Old-Christian Basilicas (5 th -6 thC.), the church-tomb from the 10 th : 12 thC, the mosque in the western part of the town, the Holy Mother of God temple in Momina Banya neighborhood, the St.Dimitar Temple in the Verigovo residential area, the St. Pantaleimon Temple, the St. Petar and Pavel Church.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
