The historic-archeological reserve "Madara" contains several hundred decare of land, whih as of 2006 is also safeguarded territory. The centre of the reserve is around the Big Cave - a rock shleter about 30 meters high and the close-by Little Cave. Both natural formations gave shelter to the oldest inhabitants of the Balkans. Due to their imposive and unusual nature, as well as the abundant water, flowing from the rocks, they have become the largest cultural complex in the Balkans - much more ancient and massive than Delphi, Dodona or the other famous Greek reserves.
The Madara Horseman is an archeological monument. It is a bas-relief, carved 23 meters high on vertical rock. It was announced as a monument of world inheritance by UNESCO in 1979. On the 29th of June 2008 after a national survey, the Madara Horseman was announced to be the global symbol of Bulgaria. An offer will be made to the bulgarian governement to place the image of the Madara Horseman on the first bulgarian euro-coin.
The Horseman is portrayed in natural size and has overgarments long from shoulders to knees. In his left hands he holds th reigns of his horse that he has mounted, with his right hand he has thrown a spear ar the fallen before the horse lion. Behind the horseman can be seen the large seat of the saddle. The right leg of the rider is in a stirrup and on his back is a quiver for a bow. On the spear, piercing the lion, is a flag and behind the horse is a running hunter's hound.
