Do you want to learn more or to see how much you know?

If you have answered YES to just one of the questions above then you have come to the right place.


Over the thousands of years of history the Balkan Peninsula and the territories of contemporary Bulgaria had been always inhabited. Many peoples crossed these lands at the crossroads between the East and the West, they lived here, led battles, left their creative works and enjoyed life. Some of them are well-known while others remain little known and probably we don’t even suspect the existence of some of them. All these peoples had left traces of their existence – examples of their way of life, culture, religion, mastery, art and crafts. These are valuable evidences of life on these ancient lands.
