Will they find a new home in the Natural History Museum? Of course you will immediately ask who?
This is the motto of a fundraising campaign that Regional History Museum Burgas started in May in order to create a fossils hall in the Natural History Museum.
It's no secret that prehistoric animals are interesting not only for children but also for adults. Unfortunately in Bulgaria, fossils expositions are rare and exist only in a very few museums.
A true treasure of fossils is stored in the collection of the Natural History Museum, that hasn’t been shown to the public so far. Their number exceeds a thousand, but only the fragments of mammals over 100.
For the third consecutive time we organize a competition for the Cup of the Natural History Museum Burgas. Teams from schools in Burgas will compete according to the familiar regulation of the competition. Each monitored plant and animal species will give a number of points. The cup will win the team with most points.
Organized by: Natural-history museum Burgas
Time: 10:00 - 13:00
Location: Ohlyuva, Sea Garden Burgas

Although in Burgas at the eve of the April Uprising in 1876, there are no significant signs of national liberation movement, the Bulgarians here were also living in a revolutionary atmosphere. The population of Burgas region successfully established their will to give Bulgarian character of their churches and schools.
Even though, the Bulgarians here were living together with Greeks, Turks, Armenians and others, they did not remain aloof from the revolutionary preparation and spirit. It is only natural, knowing that the Bulgarian Black Sea ports have been channels for secret correspondence and revolutionary activists from Odessa, Central Europe, Constantinople to Lozengrad, Adrianople, Sliven, Yambol, Stara Zagora and Nova Zagora. In 1868-72, the followers of Levski created revolutionary committees in Karnobat, Aitos, Pirne, Goritsa, Kozichino. In Burgas region the most active promoters of Levski's ideas for the preparation of nationwide uprising in Bulgarian territory, were the priests Pop George in Burgas and Pop Dimitar in Karnobat and three teachers: Sava Katrafilov, Stoyan Shivachev and Pentcho Cherkovski. They were supported by the patriotic Bulgarians: Koycho Kehaya, Yani and Yasen Rusaliev and others. They were discussing plans to receive armed rebels from Russia or such trained in the country; to aggregate arms and ammunition in small ports, those plans held in tension the Turkish authorities and caused many arrests and atrocities against the Bulgarian population.
On April 17, 2014, the Natural-history (during the whole day) and Ethnographic expositions (after 14:00) of Regional Museum Burgas will be closed for visitors due to maintenance.
The expositions will be open again on 22 April 2014.
