Perperikon deserves Pulitzer Prize

Date: 28.04.2006

The interest of the National Geographic in the ancient Thracian sites of Perperikon (some 20 kilometers northeast of the town of Kardjali) and Tatul (about 8 kilometers northeast of the town of Momchilgrad) is equal to a Pulitzer Prize for Archaeology, Prof. Nikolay Ovcharov said on the occasion of the three-day visit of photographer Kenneth Garret's team to these Thracian sanctuaries. Garreth is accompanied by another photographer and a journalist who will be the authors of the magazine's December issue dedicated to the Thracian treasures cuddled in the heart of the Eastern Rhodopes.
The guests made more than 1000 photos during the first day of their visit. Perperikon and Tatul are only a few steps in their rich program which included the Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari near Isperih and all Bulgarian gold treasures. Today they visit the Valley of the Thracian Kings - the area northwest of the town of Kazanlak where more than 1500 burial mounds have been found - and the Starosel Temple in central Bulgaria.

"The fact that we have attracted the interest of the National Geographic is one of the greatest achievements of the Bulgarian archaeology in the last 20 years, because this is one of the world's most prestigious magazines, rich in history and scenic splendor," Prof. Ovcharov said. He accentuated that many tourist choose their routes reading it.
