A Thracian Art Museum will be opened in Haskovo (Bulgaria), financed through a 2,5m dollar grant by the Japanese government. Curiously, the museum will be an exact replica of the Thracian tomb in the village of Alexandrovo (see detail from one of the frescoes. The reason: "According to the experts the tomb should not be open to the public in order to better preserve the cultural and historical heritage. The objective is to preserve the valuable murals which need to be studied, conserved and restored." The tomb was only discovered in 2000.
