Varna turns into Egypt in the summer and immerses itself in the history of one of the most ancient civilizations. The largest exhibition "An Egyptian Tale" opens its doors at the Palace of Culture and Sports from June 24 and will continue until August 4.
Treasures of Egyptian history will delight the locals, as well as the numerous tourists who have already taken their places in the 4- and 5-star hotels in the resorts around the maritime capital.
The Palace of Culture and Sports showcases more than 100 unique objects and replicas of some rare artifacts and collectible antiques from Egypt's heritage. Reconstructions of pyramid interiors, mummies and other artifacts from antiquity around the Nile River will be on display. "All visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves in the history of one of the most ancient civilizations in human history," said organizers from Antika, whose founder and managing director is Ahmed Nasser. The exposition will guide the residents of Varna and the guests of the city through the most important intellectual, literary, scientific and cultural achievements of the Egyptians over the centuries.
Its highlights, designed as separate corners, are "Culture", "Everyday life", "Myths of Ancient Egypt", "Research in Ancient Egypt", "Life after death" and others. The exhibition is the first step towards the development of cultural cooperation agreed in 2022 at the Bulgarian-Egyptian Business Forum held in Varna. The event was organized by the Municipality of Varna with the support of the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce, the Union of Arab Chambers, the Varna Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Varna Chamber of Commerce, the Golden Sands Hoteliers' Union and the Varna Tourist Chamber. After Varna, the "Egyptian Tale" tour continues from August 15 to September 7 in Burgas.
