Storyline

In 651, Khan Kubrat died and the Khazars accelerated their raids upon Great Bulgaria. His five sons split the Bulgarian tribe and each led his to find new land where they could live in peace. Khan Asparukh, the youngest son, went west and, after an arduous journey lasting for years, southward across the River Danube, into Moesia. In 680-81, in alliance with the Slavs, he inflicted stunning defeats on the Roman legions and forced the Byzantine Empire to recognize the formation of the new state of Bulgaria in the lands where it still exists today.

A true masterpiece
25 July 2005 | by Shark_AttacksSee all my reviews

After watching 10 minutes of it you already want to know whats gonna happen next. This is the best Bulgarian movie i have seen so far. It has everything in it. Romance, Drama and action. Although its old and its Bulgarian it does not look any different from any American movie in the 80s. As i said this a true masterpiece. The movie takes you back in 651 when the great khan Kubrat ruled and his son Asparuh becomes the khan after Kubrat dies. It's Asparuh's turn to guide his people to the freedom and find a new peacefull land to live on. There is a scene where you can see 50,000 soldiers. They are real bulgarians hired 50,00 people for the movie. Amazing!!! Highly recommended. You must watch if you find it.
