The Museum of Religions is unique in Bulgaria and perhaps in the world. In this location, situated in the center of modern-day Stara Zagora, different people have worshipped different gods throughout the centuries. The remains of a cult pit from the Early Iron Age (10th − 9th century B.C.), a pagan sanctuary dedicated to the Thracian horseman (2nd − 3rd century A.D.), a medieval Christian cemetery church (end of 10th − 13th century A.D.) and a Muslim temple (15th − 20th century A.D.) have been discovered in this precise location.
It is unlikely that such a place exists elsewhere, with such a rare continuity of religious practices and different faiths throughout the centuries.
