 List and show the ancient sites in your country
(I hope this has not been already made. I looked though)

BUTRINT
 Butrint was an ancient city and lived up until the later Byzantine age. Originally a big port city however due to the growing marshes in the area or a general decline in economy lowered its population until it was basically nothing. It was discovered in the 40's and new discoveries are still being made. The place lies in southern Albania near a city called Sarande. In the city a Amphitheater was discovered. Along with a bathhouse an an old  baptisterium.

We do not have much in the state of Wasington. The tribes on the coast were fairly advanced but wood rots, especially in wet Washington state. The coastal tribes were great warriors but also known for taking their enemies head as a trophy, sort of like what the Celts did. They found the remains of a village buried under a land slide a few years back.

In Hellenic it's: Phillipoupolis  (Phillip's city)

I've been to Sofia 3 weeks ago and will go again next month. I enjoyed it very much, it's a very nice city. Also this nice restaurant up the mountain, close to the ski resort (can't remember the name, but it's basically wooden, with traditional live music/singing/dancing and the waiters are dressed in traditional Bulgarian costumes).

You should return it where it belongs. It doesn't matter if it seems insignificant, it's a matter of principle!

Not all of them, lots of them are very well protected and even restored. But it is true for lots of them that they arent safely protected.

And I have a version (not the very original one, I am not that rich) of a Seljuk mosaic which is inherited to my grandfather from his father:

Tzar, you forgot the so called "Valley of Kings" near Kazanlak holding many burial chambers and some of the best Thracian pieces of art was found there.
