Even today modern builders wonder what kind of skills it takes to built that kind of a tomb near Pomorie. Many architects from around the world study the tomb to unravel the mystery of the mushroom-shaped dome. The tomb was built in 2-3 century AD. Its center is a hollow column with a diameter of 3.3 meters, which expands and merges with the outer wall. In its interior in the past was possible to climb a man using a spiral staircase.
Outside the tomb looks like a Thracian mound and in front are the foundations of two rooms. It is estimated that served as a mausoleum of a rich family from Anhialo and inside were performed religious pagan rituals. The tomb is unique not only for Bulgaria but also for the entire Balkan Peninsula. Similar tombs have been preserved in Rome, Italy.
On the wall of the tomb, there are five niches, where were placed urns of the deceased. It is assumed that the walls were painted, but today visitors can see only traces of green plaster. The entrance to the landmark costs 3 leva or approximately 1,5 euro for adults. For children, retirement, and students the price is even lower.
