Gold Treasures from Cave Polovragi


Getae-Dacian gold and silver – romanian ancient historyThe ancient Dacians, Getae and Thracians were ancient people related to each other who lived in South-Eastern Europe over 2000 years ago, in today’s Romania and Bulgaria. The dacians and the getae from North of Danube river (the natural border between Bulgaria and Romania today) were united by Burebista in 82 BC, under the name of Dacia.

“For fear of our resurrection, / They ruined our cities, they ruined our altars, / All our beauties gone, like a curse, they crippled us/ And we were left only with the sun. / With him we made paths in the forests, in the mountains, / Near small hearths. / If you look back, in every stone, immortal/You’ll find us, just us … “
