In 1396, as a result of the crisis looming over the medieval Christian world and after a century of war against the Ottoman Empire, the heart of Central and Eastern Europe – Bulgaria - fell. For many centuries it had been the center of the development of culture, spirituality and knowledge. For hundreds of years, it had been a guiding light for the entire Slavic world. Creators of the Bulgarian writing system, hosts to the best ceramic schools in the world, brave warriors and brilliant strategists, builders of breathtaking palaces, champions of equality and freedom, bearers of order and culture, the Bulgarians were an incredible people.
Mission And Goals
Pilot project of the Historical Park
Neofit Rilski village, Varna region
The complex is a tourist attraction with a cultural and historical orientation. Separate exhibitions of everyday life and culture on our lands from the most ancient times were recreated (Neolithic and Chalcolithic huts, a Thracian museum and a reconstitution of the tomb of Aleksandrovo) and a unique cuisine with delicacies of authentic ancient recipes were proposed. Here the past becomes accessible to all senses thanks to a meticulous attention to detail and enjoyable attractions such as archery, Thracian ritual wine drinking from exquisite rhytons and phiales, pictures taken in traditional outfits from various eras, tours in a Thracian chariot, pony rides and a themed playground.
Large-scale user-oriented attraction-site with cognitive and entertaining orientation. The Historical Park provides opportunities to be used as an aid by pupils and students in the process of their education.
