Pliska is the first capital of Bulgaria and the cradle of todays bulgarian country. From the origin of the bulgarian country in 681 by khan Asparuh to 893 Pliska is not only a capial - it is also one of the largest and richest cities in Europe and the world. It has remarkable architecture which the bulgarians carry over from their previous villages.
Characteristic for a nation, coming from the steppes, the bulgarians build their capital in the fields, surrounded by heights - a natural wall against enemies. Three defensive rings have been built. The first is a deep moat with a high mound, which surrounds the Outer city. The second is made of large stone blocks, forming a 12 meter high foretress wall, which has on each side 2 five-angled towers and a gate, the main entrance bing on the eastern side. The third ring is a brick garrison, defending the citadel. This complex, surrounded by walls, is located on half a square kilometer of land. The city was gigantic for medieval times - 23,3 square kilometers. The palace of khan Krum has been built on 500 square meters and is one of the most remarkable monuments. Historics have also found secret tunnels, through which the aristocrats and population could escape the city during a siege. In the palace was a watersupply and spacious baths. During the rule of khan Omurtag (814 - 831) was the second expansion of the city. He finishes the foretress walls, builds pagan temples and the so-called Throne room. In the Inner city the most defended building was the large palace. In the Outer city have been found remains of houses, workshops, churches and economic buildings. 1,3 kilometers from the eastern gate of the Inner city is the Large Basilica - the biggest christian temple in Southeast Europe of the time of the bulgarian conversion.
