The Vuchitrun Treasure and the Kubrat gold in the Archaeological Museum until September 30
Wednesday, 04 Sep 2019 - Archeological Museum
Two of the most elite Bulgarian treasures can be seen in Burgas until the end of September. Nearly 8,000 visitors have visited the guest exhibitions "The Thracian Gold Treasure from Vulchitrun" and "The Memory of Greater Bulgaria" in the Treasury Hall of the Archaeological Museum (21 Bogoridi St.) since the beginning of the summer season.

The Vulchitrun treasure is the largest Thracian gold treasure discovered so far in Bulgaria. It consists of nine vessels with a purity of gold of 88% and a total weight of 12.5 kg, as the largest of which is 4.5 kg. It is believed that the gold vessels were used in the cult practices of Thracian priests who lived in the period 1600-1200 BC.

The exhibition "The memory of Greater Bulgaria" presents the most impressive objects of Khan Kubrat's treasure from Malaya Pereschepina - the golden rings of the khan with his name, a scepter, gold goblets and jars, a gold rhyton, gold tips and applications from the Khan belt and many . et al. They are the only museum copies of the originals that are stored in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The exhibits are the property of the National Museum of History-Sofia and are specially designed for the native audience to touch the history of the Bulgarians. Khan Kubrat's treasure is the largest early medieval treasure discovered so far in Europe. It is made up of gold and silver objects weighing 76 kg, which eloquently illustrate the extraordinary economic power of Khan Kubrat's state, known in historical sources as Greater Bulgaria.
