Exhibition allows a peek into the houses of the rich a century ago
Wednesday, 15 Feb 2017 - Historical Museum

You've heard of the rich merchants from around the world, who lived in Burgas in the late 19th and early 20th century? They were the owners of the beautiful houses in neoclassical style and Secession, which we see today in the central streets of our city. They were under the influence of the modern European centers - Vienna, Paris and London. The Neoclassicism changed not only the facades of buildings in Burgas but also imported pomp and splendor in the interior.

A peek into the houses of the rich a century ago offers the exhibition "Luxury of XIX century" that will open at 18.00 on February 17, 2017 (Friday), at "Al. D. Kodzhakafaliyata" Hall in Cultural Center Sea Casino.

The exhibition is a joint project of the Regional museums in Burgas and Ruse. It includes part of the exposition "Donated and rescued treasures" of Burgas History Museum. Among the exhibits will be valuable examples of European applied art - a large number of watches, workshops, paintings, mirrors, jewelry boxes, sculptures of bronze and porcelain, seized and confiscated by the Regional Customs Directorate - Burgas in two different attempts of cultural heritage trafficking through the territory of Bulgaria.

In 2016, the exhibition "Luxury of XIX century" received Award for the concept of a mobile exhibition in Category "A joint exhibition."

Valuable exhibit of Burgas museum will be part of a major exhibition in Vienna
Wednesday, 08 Feb 2017 - Archeological Museum

One of the most valuable exhibits from the collection of the Archaeological museum in Burgas - a copper ingot, will be part of an elite exhibition in the Austrian capital Vienna. The exhibition is dedicated to metals and resources in the Bronze Age from the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula and will be opened in March. It is organized by the Bulgarian National Archaeological Institute with Museum and Museum of Art History Vienna (Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien).

The copper ingot was a pre-coin means of exchange from the Bronze Age /1400-1200 BC/. It was found at the village of Cherkovo, near Rusokastro river. The ingot is shaped as stretched cowhide and is marked with the sign '+' which occurs in both Minoan scripts that scientists mark as linear A and B. The exhibit is of particular interest because there are absolute analogies of it from the islands Cyprus, Crete and elsewhere in the Mediterranean, indicating the European trade routes during the Bronze Age.

This is not the first participation of the copper ingot from the Burgas archaeological museum in big international exhibitions. In 2001-2002 the exhibit was part of the largest exhibition "Troy - Myth and Reality". Back then the value of the exhibit was estimated at 600 000 German Marks and toured three museums in Germany.

140 years since the birth of Mikhail Gerdzhikov - organizer and leader of the uprising in 1903
Wednesday, 25 Jan 2017 - Historical Museum

Mikhail Gerdzhikov was born on January 26, 1877 in Plovdiv. He grew in those turbulent years after the Liberation of Bulgaria, when the foundations of the renewed state, rapture and intoxication of the freedom, followed by the 1885 Unification, had not been able to erase from the minds of people the bitterness of the unjust decisions at the Berlin Congress. The fate of other Bulgarians in slavery troubled all of the awakened minds in free Bulgaria.
