Tuesday, 01 Mar 2011 - Ethnographical Museum

[img right]uploads/images/misc/martenitsa.jpg[/img][justify]First of March marks the beginning of the spring-summer season. This holiday is also called "Marta", "Martichka", "Gadalushka", "Kichilka.
Today matenitsa is a symbol of our faith in the renewal power of spring, our hope for more prosperity and fertility. In the past it was believed that the martenitsas on one hand could protect people from disasters, diseases and misfortune as they "drive away the evil", on the other hand bring health, success and happiness.
Even today they are made from white and red treads:
White colour symbolizes innocence, spiritual purity and longevity;
and the Red colour - the fire, blood and life itself.[/justify]

Regional Museum Burgas in the National Assembly with an exhibition dedicated to the Liberation of Burgas region
Monday, 07 Feb 2011 - Historical Museum

[img left]uploads/images/misc/posreshtane.jpg[/img] On February 9 at 11:00 in the lobby of the National Assembly, the exhibition of the Regional Historical Museum Burgas in partnership with Municipality Burgas - "The Liberation of Burgas region and the contribution of Lermontov family in the Russo-Turkish Liberation War and the restoration of Burgas in 1878" will be opened.
The exhibition presents the different story of Burgas region, which connects the southern coast and south-eastern Thrace. During the nineteenth century there were two Russo-Turkish wars - in 1828-29, and 1877-78 in this region, but they didn’t materialise the national liberation ideas of the local Bulgarian population.
For the liberation of Burgas region fought a certain Russian gentlefolk family, member of which is also the great Russian poet M. Yu. Lermontov. Nine talented military commanders and one volunteer – an open-hearted nurse, three generations accepted as their life mission the liberation of Bulgaria and specifically tied their fate to the Burgas region.
Today the contact with Lermontov family continues, the successors of Lermontov have created the foundation "Lermontov’s heritage" with branches worldwide, including Burgas.
