Burgas archaeologists celebrate their professional holiday with an exhibition about the mysteries and wine
Tuesday, 09 Feb 2021 - Archeological Museum
February 14 is known as the feast of wine and love. On it people honor the Christian saints Trifon Zarezan and Valentine. Little is known, however, that on this day Bulgarian archaeologists celebrate their professional holiday. Its celebration on this date began in 1971 on the initiative of the Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (now the National Archaeological Institute with Museum at BAS).

On the occasion of the Archaeologist's Day, the Burgas Archaeological Museum has prepared a curious exhibition that combines the tradition of wine, love for it and archaeological science.

The exhibition "From the mysteries of wine or how they drank it in Ancient Greece and Thrace" illustrates the path of the vine - from its appearance, the mysterious practices and iconography of the god of reviving and dying nature, wine, viticulture and merriment - Dionysus and his retinue, the symposium or the art of turning another's into one's own, the Thracians and wine - passion, knowledge, communication with the gods ... and the Way of Wine.

The exhibition can be seen from 10.02.2021. in the Archaeological Museum of Burgas, 21 Bogoridi Str., from Tuesday to Saturday, from 9:00 to 17:00.
