Ethnographic Museum

Museums & Galleries

The Ethnographic Museum presents the rich culture and way of life of the population in the Varna region from the second half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.

One of the most interesting exhibits in the museum is the small ancient plough called dyolmedzha, used for ploughing of earth at the beginning of the 20th century. You can also see vessels for storing grain, as well as vessels for the preparation of bread.

The exposition on the second floor in the Ethnographic Museum presents traditional national costumes, which give an idea of the demographics of the Varna region. The people’s clothes in the settlements in the region differentiate with their great variety due to the complex migration processes which happened in the first decades and the end of the 19th century.

Traditional costumes of each of the basic geographic groups in the region are presented here – local population and settlers from the Thracian region, Asia Minor, and Macedonia. Traditional costumes for different holidays – Christmas, Petlyovden, Lazarovden, are also presented.
