It will be held this Saturday (26.01) at 11:30 h. with a new venue - the presentation hall of the Ethnographic Museum (Burgas, 69 Slavyanska Str., behind St. Cyril and St. Methodius Church).
For the life of the holy Baptist will speak Ivanka Deleva - chief curator of the Historical Exposition at RHM-Burgas and a specialist in the history of Orthodox Christianity. "The strict abstinence of Saint John the Baptist served as example for the greatest Christian pilgrims, and his bold death inspired all the martyrs during the persecution of the Christian faith. Many people gathered to hear the words of the saint, and even today his image and personality provoke us." the Burgas historian announced.
In the saint's life, it is said that when Jesus Christ went to him and asked to be baptized in the Jordan River, the prophet refused initially with the words, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?" But Jesus knew that John was "the greatest man born of a woman," and insisted that he be his Baptist.
The entrance fee for educational lectures in the museum is preferential. The price for adults is BGN 2, and for students and pensioners - BGN 1.

Образователната програма на РИМ-Бургас „Опознай Бургас и Бургаския край“ продължава тази събота, 15 декември с лекция, посветена на народния празник Игнажден и поверията свързани с него в Странджа. Лектор ще бъде уредник от Етнографската експозиция Красимира Дубарова.
В календара 20 декември (Игнажден) е много близо до зимното слънцестоене. Това е породило и широко разпространената сред старите българи представа, че от Игнажден започва Нова година и коледните празници. Най-характерен за празника е обичаят ПОЛАЗВАНЕ. На този ден е най-важно какъв човек ще влезе пръв в къщата, а по това се гадае каква ще бъде годината.
Публичните лекции са всяка събота, от 11.30 часа, в обновения Природонаучен музей в Бургас (ул. К. Фотинов 30). Входната такса за лекциите е преференциална - за възрастни 2 лв., а за учащи и пенсионери – 1 лв.

The chronological framework puts the foundation of Apollonia Pontica in 610 BC. of migrants from Miletus in southwestern Asia Minor. The advantage is that it is only a day's sailing from Byzantium and quickly becomes a thriving city. In 72 BC, Apollonia was robbed by the armies of Mark Terenzi Lucull. He is referring to the statue of Apollo in Rome, and the city is forcibly annexed to Roman possessions.
Archaeological studies of Apollonia Pontica began by French diplomat Baron Julius Alexander Degan in 1904. They were continued by the most famous Bulgarian researchers at the time. Excavations are held at varying intensities throughout the 20th century, and since 2002, a French team has been included in the study of Apollonia.
The exhibition contains over 500 artefacts, organized according to male, female and children's activities. Among them are: a ritually bent sword, a bronze wreath with gold, banquet service, gold jewelry, tweezers and a blush with make-up blush, pacifiers, dolls, figurines of various animals, etc.
"Apollonia Pontica - in the footsteps of archaeologists" can be seen in the period 14 December 2018 - 10 March 2019 in the Temporary Expositions Hall of the Regional History Museum - Sofia (1 Banski Square).
"Apollonia Pontica - in the footsteps of archaeologists" includes exhibits from: Louvre, Museum Center - Sozopol, National Archaeological Institute with Museum - BAS, National Museum of History, Regional historical museum - Burgas.
