Museum of Bulgarian Revival, Varna

Museum of Bulgarian Revival, Varna

The museum is dedicated to the cultural and social life of Bulgarians during the National Revival. It's located on the site previously occupied by a school, then a church and a library complex. Established in 1959, the museum features an interesting exhibit of a restored school classroom that has a sand box children learned to write in and a blackboard bearing letters of the Bulgarian alphabet. There's also a fascinating exhibition at the museum recounting the history of the city and the surrounding region. It includes manuscripts, early printed editions of books and antique weapons from the 18th and 19th centuries.
