Mission and goals

The mission of the Historical Park project

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.

Just before them, over 3000 years ago, these lands were inhabited by a free-spirited and powerful people - the Thracians - a nation of incredibly brave warriors, who put freedom before life. A folk which gave birth to the mighty Spartacus and the magical Orpheus. Masters of merriment and war, creators of amazing treasures, the Thracians have always been an attractive force to anyone possessing the spirit of adventure.

Long before them, the first European civilization emerged on our lands. The state of development of these people still amazes contemporary scientists and leaves them without explanation regarding the achievements of such an early society.

The contemporary Bulgarian is the heir to these great civilizations that lived on our lands, but unfortunately, only artifacts that are solely understandable to archaeologists, but not to the common man, remain. This is the reason why, for the last 140 years, we have undervalued ourselves and bowed our heads to foreign greatness. We, at the Historical Park, have decided to introduce the whole world to the genius, hard work and creativity of our folk.

From now on, every child, every man or woman will be able to travel back in time and learn about the great people who inhabited these magical lands.


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.


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.
