The most exquisite golden treasure of antiquity in Europe will be on display this summer at the Archaeological Museum in Burgas,21 Bogoridi Street.
A few days ago, the nine vessels of the astonishing Panagyurishte treasure arrived in Burgas, and are now exhibited in the Trezore Hall. The objects present a magnificent work of goldsmiths from the Early Hellenistic era, and it is supposed that they belonged to the legendary Odrisian ruler Seuthes III (about 330-300 BC).
The treasure was discovered on December 8, 1949, near the city of Panagyurishte, by the brothers Dekov. It includes a phial, an amphora-rhyton, four zoomorphic rhytons and three anthropomorphic jars. All of them are made of high-quality gold (over 22 carats) and weigh more than 6 kg. The treasure is part of an exposition of the National History Museum in Sofia.
The exhibited objects are a museum copy of the treasure which is part of an exposition of the National Museum of History in Sofia.
The gold objects will remain in Burgas until September 30, and the museum's working hours are every day from 10.00 to 19.00.
Regional historical museum of Burgas launched this year's regular archaeological research of Rusokastro Fortress. The funding of the excavations in 2018 are again provided from the budget of Municipality Kameno and co-financed by the Ministry of Culture.
This summer the archaeologists will continue their research on the citadel, the water reservoir and a representative two-storey building. Their aim is to reach a state suitable for conservation and restoration of the structures. Head of research at the archaeological site is the director of the Burgas Museum Milen Nikolov with a consultant prof. Konstantin Totev - a specialist in medieval archaeology from the Tarnovo branch of the National Archaeological Institute with a museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
The idea is to have the Rusokastro fortress become the object of cultural tourism of the ranks of Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Cherven, since in South Bulgaria there is no other medieval site with such features.
Regional historical museum of Burgas invites everyone who believes in the magic of the sun and the enchanting herbs to come to the yard of the Ethnographic Exposition (69 Slavyanska Street) on Enyovden (24 June, Sunday) at 11:00 and see the little Enyo's bride then go through the Enyo's wreath for health and happiness.
On Enyovden the stars descend to the ground and baths in the herbs, the sun also gives them healing power. Then the girls split a wreath of 101 herbs through which people venture for health and to prevent any evil.
Enyovden is a traditional custom celebrated on June 24, the day of the summer solstice, which coincides with the Christian holiday of St. John the Baptist. This is the longest day of the year, so it is also associated with the cult of the sun. On Enyovden old and young are rolling in dew, bathing in rivers and springs, believing that before the sun has been bathed there.
