A new gold find was discovered in the Rusokastro Fortress research
Friday, 01 Sep 2017 - Archeological Museum

During the excavations of the Rusokastro fortress this summer, archaeologists have discovered another gold find. Near the monumental stone staircase unveiled few days ago, they found a gold coin - perpera, minted in the period 1325-1328. The face presents the image of St. Mary and on the reverse side is Jesus Christ together with the Byzantine emperors Andronicus II and Andronicus III Palaeologus. This is the second gold coin of the first half of the 14th century, discovered during the excavations of the Rusokastro fortress. In 2016, another similar coin, minted between 1341 and 1348, was found in front of the western fortress wall.



Analysis of coin finds from season 2017 is yet to come. In addition to gold, this year many copper coins have been discovered, including such from the Bulgarian tsars Konstantin Tih and Ivan Alexander. The silver coins are from Tsar Ivan Alexander, Venice and the Duke of Athens. The detailed analysis of the coins will be prepared after they have been cleaned and conservated in a restoration workshop.
The excavations of the Rusokastro Fortress are led by Milen Nikolov and Dorothea Girdziyska from the Regional Historical Museum Burgas. They are funded by Kameno Municipality, Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and National Museum of History.

There is a monumental stone staircase of the Rusokastro fortress
Friday, 25 Aug 2017 - Archeological Museum

The excavations of the Rusokastro fortress have revealed a monumental stone staircase leading from the foot of the fortress castle to its interior. The footsteps are made of large stone blocks, bond with mortar. Unfortunately, many of them have been removed in recent time for construction material by inhabitants of the surrounding villages. The staircase lies directly over the rock and leads to the entrance to the fortress castle, which is also localized by the archaeologists. It is also quite damaged by the extraction of stones for modern construction during the first half of the 20th century. The staircase is 12 m long and 2.05 m wide, overcoming a displacement of 5 m. This is the only place from which the castle can be entered. This is one of the largest similar medieval sites in Bulgaria with an area of ​​nearly 2 decares.
Ceramics and coins from the 13th to 14th centuries have been discovered around the staircase. Fragments of frescoes that have yet to be analyzed by medieval painting experts have been discovered in the upper part.



Rusokastro fortress is being explored by a team of the Burgas Museum, led by Milen Nikolov and Dorotea Gyurdziyska. The excavations are funded by the Municipality of Kameno, the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Bulgaria and the National Museum of History.


European Heritage Days 2017 - Programm for RHM Burgas
Tuesday, 22 Aug 2017 - Global

Open access to expositions and a free visit to the visiting exhibitions on their last day in Burgas


Over the past two decades, the European Heritage Days initiative has become one of the most important events in the cultural calendar of Europe, attracting millions of visitors to the rich cultural heritage of the continent. In September each year, countries in Europe open the doors to more or less familiar cultural landmarks by organizing different campaigns to promote heritage and search for its place in the present.
The Regional History Museum of Burgas will participate in the European-wide initiative and in 2017 with a diverse cultural program.
It will start with the national scientific conference "Bulgarian Refugees in Burgas and the Region 1878 - 1945" from 27 to 29 September, which will be held at the College of Tourism. The conference is organized by the Regional Museum of History of Burgas and the Municipality of Burgas in partnership with Regional Library "P.Yavorov" Bourgas, Thracian Research Institute, Regional State Archive Directorate - Bourgas and University "Prof. Asen Zlatarov ". On the last day of the summer season - September 30, RIM Burgas will open the doors of its expositions for free. Visitors will have the chance to see the visiting exhibitions on the last day of their stay in Burgas.

The idea of ​​"European Heritage Days" arose in 1985 at the Second Conference of European Ministers for Architectural Heritage, organized by the Council of Europe in Granada, Spain. France's former culture minister, Jacques Lang, has proposed a successful French experiment for an open-door cultural heritage day in other countries of the continent.
Today, all 50 signatories to the European Cultural Convention are part of the initiative, raising their citizens' awareness of the cultural diversity of Europe. Over time, European Heritage Days have also become a mechanism to promote the public role and significance of cultural values ​​that have reached us. Active participants of all ages are actively involved in the Days, paying particular attention to students and young people.
European Heritage Days are a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Union. The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria is the coordinator and main organizer of the country.

Jazz at the Ethnographic Museum with Angel Zaberski Trio on August 1
Monday, 31 Jul 2017 - Ethnographical Museum

On August 1 (Tuesday), from 19.30, jazz lovers in Burgas will have the opportunity to enjoy the music of Angel Zabersky Trio (Angel Zabersky - piano, Stoyan Yankulov - Stundji - drums and Boris Taslev - double bass). Their concert "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" is part of the project "Jazz in the Museum" of NGO Cause Culture, which partner for Burgas is the Regional historical museum.

The project "Jazz in the Museum" includes 12 concerts throughout the country. Each of them has different performers and contains both world-famous produced and author's works by contemporary Bulgarian composers of jazz music. The purpose of Jazz in the Museum is to present new or new readings of "classical" jazz pieces to the musicians in the established jazz centers such as Rousse, Burgas, Varna, Stara Zagora, Sofia, but also to attract new fans from cities, In which jazz concerts are not a frequent event. "The content and performers of each concert are different, which would allow the same audience to "follow" the concerts in different cities and create a sustainable interest in the cycle", - says Veronika Azarova, author of Project and chairman of "Cause Culture".

For the place of this unusual musical evening, on 1 August, the most cozy green corner in the middle of Burgas - the yard of the Ethnographic Museum (69 Slavyanska Str.) was chosen. The charity concert will be with a free-entry and jazz music lovers will have the opportunity to contribute to a noble cause.



Association "Cause Culture" was founded in 2014 by famous Bulgarian intellectuals and scientists, among them Prof. Georg Kraev, Prof. Maria Popova, Dr. Veronika Azarova, Mrs Desislava Mihaylova, Mrs. Maria Kasimova - Moise and Etc. The aim of the Association is to support the research and dissemination of the cultural and historical heritage and its preservation for future generations, to develop and promote multidisciplinary projects in the field of culture and the arts.

Impressive find was discovered during the excavations of Rusokastro fortress
Wednesday, 26 Jul 2017 - Archeological Museum

The archaeological excavations of Rusokastro fortress have revealed an extremely rare and elite find. A two-sided icon of ivory was found, with a facial image of Archangel Gabriel and St. Basil the Great. On the reverse side are depicted two crosses - the cross and the procession. The images are part of the Annunciation scene.
Essentially, the find is a triptych wing. It was threefold and was used as a mobile altar.

The holly object was made in the 10th century in Constantinople upon the order of one of the Byzantine emperors or a member of the imperial family. Only they had the opportunity to receive the extraordinarily expensive middle-aged ivory, which then was valued more than gold.

Worldwide, no more than 15 similar finds were found during archaeological excavations. Only one similar object was found in Bulgaria at the royal citadel of Trapezitsa in Veliko Tarnovo. It was discovered by the French archaeologist Georges Sierre in the early 20th century and is a fragment of an ivory icon depicting the Assumption.

Findings of such an elite class are stored in the world's largest museums such as the Louvre, the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, and now the Regional historical Museum in Burgas. Their rarity is due to the fact that they were made only for the needs of the Byzantine emperors and their closest family circle. Today, such finds are stored in some ecclesiastical treasures in Western Europe, where they have arrived after the Fourth Crusade. Then the knights captured Constantinople, plundered the Byzantine imperial treasury in which such ivory articles were kept. Later they donate them to some of the cathedrals in the major Western European cities.

The excavations of the Rusokastro fortress are carried out by team from Regional historical Museum Burgas under the archaeologist Milen Nikolov. They are financed by the Municipality of Kameno, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria and National Museum of History.



Angel Zaberski, Boris Taslev and Stundji with a concert in Burgas as a part of the art project "Jazz in the Museum"
Tuesday, 25 Jul 2017 - Ethnographical Museum

On August 1 (Tuesday), at 19.30 the music fans in Burgas will have the opportunity to become part of the unique art project "Jazz in the Museum". Especially for them, Angel Zabersky Trio arrives with the concert "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea".

The famous musicians - Angel Zaberski (piano), Stoyan Yankulov - Stundji (percussion) and Boris Taslev (double bass) will perform pieces from their second album, which features famous operas and plays in a contemporary jazz version. The composer Angel Zabersky has managed to preserve the author's ideas and melodies so that they are easily recognized by the audience but at the same time interprets them with a sense of freedom and ample, typical of jazz. The music of the album Like Jazz reminds of late romanticism, even with impressionistic notes. The appearance of the three musicians is maximally revived, precisely in order for the melody to be deprived of aggression or unnecessary display, and to read the romance in it.

As a stage for this unusual musical evening was chosen the most cozy green spot in the middle of Burgas - the yard of the Ethnographic Museum (69 Slavyanska St.). The concert will be free of charge, yet the jazz lovers will have the opportunity to contribute to a noble cause. All gathered donations from the evening will go for the restoration of two valuable music instruments from the collections of Burgas cultural institutions. One is the grand piano of Burgas Art Gallery "Petko Zadgorski", which for years needs a serious repair and the second is a piano owned by the Regional Library "P. Yavorov".

Organizers of the project "Jazz in the Museum" in the sea town are Association "Cause Culture" and Regional historical museum Burgas with the support of Regional Library "P. Yavorov".
