An Arch will be Built over an Ancient Tomb in front of the Sofia Town Hall – Telegraf newspaper, Oct 19, 2018.2018
The artefact remains closed, its
scriptures will be recreated on top of it.
The ancient tomb from the early Christian period (5th-6th
c. A.D.) has been uncovered this summer during renovation works at
Moskovskastreet, right across from the Sofia Town Hall. This is yet another
tomb from the East-side necropolis of the ancient town of Serdika. Inside the
tomb there are impressive bright-colored murals depicting two crosses as well
as floral motives. Mr. Peev, dipl. Architect and CEO of EKSA, presented the
design for preserving and exhibiting the tomb. The murals will be recreated and
shown for the public at the ground level. The pavement of the sidewalk right
above the tomb will be painted in a different color and its shape will resemble
that of the tomb underneath. There will also be an arch built on top, with a
color appropriately corresponding to the hues of the bricks of Saint Sofia
church, located right next to the tomb.
