Seuthopolis National Initiative
Seuthopolis, the city of the Thracian king Seuthes III, and the capital of the ancient state of Odrissia was discovered and explored from 1948 to 1954 during the construction of the Koprinca dam. Unfortunately, after the dam was filled with water the first and the best preserved Thracian city in modern Bulgaria remained on the bottom of the artificial lake. This mistake, from the times of historical and national nihilism, can be corrected today and Seuthopolis can be returned into the treasure house of world cultural heritage.
