See the oldest gold pieces here. Nice collection for a small city...all pieces found in the area. The 20 Lev fee to take photos is outrageous...use the money and buy a book instead.

Initially we went to see the Thracian Gold - apparently the largest collection in Europe. However there was so much more of interest. Exhibits started from the Palaeolithic age and came forward through the history of settlement in Varna. The exhibits focused on grave findings...More
