The Renaissance Museum is one of the most interesting museums in the city of Varna. It is here that the social and cultural life of the inhabitants of Bulgaria during the Renaissance is revealed.
The museum is housed in a building that housed a library, school and church until 1878. Over time, all these organizations moved into separate buildings, and in 1959 the Renaissance Museum was opened here.
On the lower floor of the building you can observe a school room, where desks with sand, where students learned to write, are of particular interest. A blackboard with the Bulgarian alphabet has also been preserved here. Next to the classroom is the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, where you can observe several icons that have survived to this day.
On the second floor there is an exposition, reflecting important historical moments of the Varna region. The most interesting are old printed editions and manuscripts of the 18th and 19th centuries, keys to the city gates, old engravings of the 19th century, ancient weapons of the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as personal belongings of soldiers who died during the Russian-Turkish war.
