Golyama Kosmatka is one of the biggest mounds ever found on Balkan Peninsula. It is situated near the town of Shipka and it dates from the end of V c B.C-beginning of IV c. B.C. The tomb consists of 13m long corridor and three chambers. In the third chamber there is a ritual bed made by enormous granite block with almost 60 tones weight. The richest gold findings were found in that tomb-about 20 objects. Among them is a very precisely made golden wreath from oak leaves (45sm diameter), a golden kiliks (a wide wine glass), golden heads of a goddess and a deer. The most ancient object ever found in a Thracian grave is a silver shell with golden decoration. A bronze man’s head was found in Golyama Kosmatka too.
