Pliska

PliskaThis is the Slavic name the Proto-Bulgarians gave to the first capital of their new state.

Reviving the traditions of their predecessors they erected a monumental and austere looking city.
Remains of the most impressive buildings have survived until the present: the Large Basilica, the palaces and Throne Room from the second half of the 9-th century.
Pliska is now a National Archaeological Reserve.
