Epigraphic monument from Emperor Nero marks a turning point in the earlier scientific hypothesis for the beginning of the construction of the Roman baths in Aquae calidae. Until recently, it was assumed that the thermal complex was built by Emperor Trajan in the 2nd century AD, as other Roman bath complexes in the region were built at that time. After the discovery and reading of the inscription on the stone, the lower chronological boundary of the existence of the complex changed to the beginning of the second half of the 1st century and is illustrated by Nero's inscription of a bath. According to Nikolai Sharankov, the beginning of Aquae calidae is dated between 60 and 68 AD. The researcher assumes that it is possible that the bath was built around 61 AD when Nero built roads and road stations in the province of Thrace. Archaeological studies led by archaeologist Prof. Dimcho Momchilov reveal several structures from the middle of the 1st century AD. Among them is a marble basin. Five Steps from its eastern end are located just outside the entrance of Suleiman's Bath - today's museum. The greater part of this facility remains under the foundations of the Turkish bath.
The visitors of Aquae calidae Museum in November will be among the first to see the stone of Emperor Nero. So far, it has not been shown to a wide audience.
The Aquae calidae Museum will be open in November from 9:00 to 17:00 hours, no day off. The cost of visiting the museum is 4 BGN for a regular ticket, 2 BGN for students and pensioners and includes a 3D mapping projection.
The exposition is presented in partnership with the Regional historical museum of Burgas.

What are the species that fly over it, how many migrates, why do bird lovers from all over Europe visit our Black Sea coast? You will receive an answer to all these questions on 3 November at 11.30 in the Natural History Museum (30, K. Fotinov Str.) Where Assoc.

For the first time, the pilgrims will be able to view the St. John the Theologian's ampoule-reliquary, found on Foros peninsula. It will be exhibited for worship in the temple "St. Pimen Zografski ", Kraimorie, on his patron saint's day 3 November (Saturday).
This will initiate a campaign to raise funds to paint the interior of the church. It is organized by Initiative Committee, chaired by Prof. Dr. Sevdalina Tourmanova - Deputy Governor of Burgas Region.
To help the donation campaign, the Regional historical museum of Burgas organizes a presentation of the valuable exhibit. It was discovered by researchers team led by Milen Nikolov in 2014, during archaeological excavations of the only early Christian basilica in the Municipality of Burgas on the Foros peninsula on the territory of Kraimorie. The find is unique in the world. Similar are found in Ephesus, but they are made of clay while the ampoule of Foros is from lead. It dates back to the 6th century and is associated with the cult of St. John the Theologian. He was a beloved disciple of Jesus Christ who settled down at the command of his teacher at Ephesus, where he wrote the Apocalypse and ended his earthly journey. According to archaeologists, the Pilgrim of the Poros fortress has worshiped the tomb of St. John the Theologian in Ephesus, from where he brought the precious relic - an ampule of healing powder.
The ampulla-reliquary will be exhibited for worship along with a fragment of Christ's cross and the relics of the reverend Martyrs brought from Jerusalem. All donated funds on the day of the temple celebration on 3.11.2018 will be provided for the church painting campaign.

The educational program of RHM-Burgas continues this Saturday, October 27, with the lecture "The Poisonous Snakes in Bulgaria". Author is the biologist-curator Bozhana Ribarova.
A popular fact is that in Bulgaria most snakes are not poisonous. The topic of the lecture is precisely the few poisonous species that we can encounter in nature, and only during the warm months of the year. Two of the species - steppe viper and aspida, are even considered to have disappeared from the territory of the country and have not been seen for many years. Biologists emphasize that the snake would not attack a man if not irritated, and advise them to be overlooked. It is good for people to wear appropriate shoes and socks when walking around nature, and be careful not to stand up on the reptile accidentally while it lays on the sun.

During the scientific forum, trends will be presented in the development of the so-called "serious games" that help students learn the historical material from their textbooks in a fun way. Thracian Architecture Professor Malvin Ruseva will present a game "The Thracians", which was developed under the National Program for the Study and Presentation of the Thracian monuments.
