The "Rogozen Treasure" Room Exhibition

          This room houses the treasure from Rogozen, consisting of 165 vessels, made of silver and decorated with gold.  Several generations of local Thracian kings had added to this collection in the period between the end of the 6th and the 4th c. BC, so it represents a family set of one dynasty.  The rulers demonstrated their wealth and power through the splendor of the treasure.  A big part of the vessels were produced locally - the multifarious and gorgeous decoration bears the characteristics of a unique art.  The mythological scenes depicted on it testify to the vastness of the spiritual world of the Thracians.
