The Rosetta Stone and the golden mask of Tutankhamun are in Burgas

Egyptian history is the most ancient on earth? That the Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World that has survived to this day?

That it is made of 2,300,000 stone blocks, and each of them weighs 2.5 tons? And that the location of the three royal pyramids coincides exactly with the three central stars in the Orion constellation? Did you know that the Egyptians were very clever and clever? That they discovered the cigarette and ink, built the first ships with sails, first started painting on plaster, and many of the objects we use in everyday life such as a key, comb, scissors, wig, make-up, deodorant, brush and toothpaste were made precisely from them? Did you know they slept on stone pillows..?


Well, now you know. But the most important thing is to learn that from August 18 to September 19 in the Congress Center - Burgas Port, in the "Chernomorie" hall next to the Sea Station, the exhibition "Egyptian Tales" will be a guest thanks to Antika Balkans and our fellow citizen Gergana Stoyanova - one of the organizers of the event. Here's what she shared in advance:


"An extraordinary journey through time awaits us this month in Burgas. The Egyptian Tales exhibit features over 100 exact replicas of some of the most significant artifacts that tell fragments of Egypt's history. The exhibition goes beyond mere visual effects with a tribute to Egypt's boundless contribution to the development of human civilization. Antika is the exclusive owner of the collection made by Konouz Egypt. The exposition will take us through different eras of Egyptian history from Ancient Egypt, Greco-Roman, Coptic, Islamic and Modern. You will come across the statue of Cheops. It is a paradox that the image of the pharaoh who owned the largest pyramid is on the smallest statuette - only 9 cm. It was found in the tomb of his mother, you will get to know his sons, the rule during the fourth dynasty and move on to the life of the time of Nefertiti and Thutmose to reach the objects belonging to the child pharaoh Tutankhamun, namely: a necklace with a vulture and a cobra, a hunting and fishing chair, a coffin with a mummy, the golden mask, his head and statues on a leopard and a boat.


The exhibition also includes the Rosetta Stone - the epigraphic monument found in 1799 during the excavations of the ancient Al-Rashid fortress, about 7 kilometers from the small town of Rosetta by the Nile. It turns out to be the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs.


And another funeral bed with the heads of lionesses, a shrine with vessels, the statue of the god Ptah, gold ornaments, masks, icons and papyri, amulets... The glitter, the exquisite pattern and the ethereal lines will saturate your eyes and stir your souls.


And that's not all, in the souvenir shop you can buy handmade miniatures of the replicas of the original artifacts with a certificate of origin and quality, and with the purchased tickets from the exhibition you will have the unique chance to participate in a raffle and be among the four lucky ones who will win a trip to Egypt for two.


P.S. Last night at 18:30 with a sophisticated reception and cocktail in the presence of the ambassador of Egypt H.E. Khalil Ibrahim Emara, the ambassadors of the countries of Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Poland, the founder of the organizing company Mr. Ahmed Nasr, who gave a speech, Professor Sergey Ignatov, who told us about the exposition, among businessmen, historians, cultural figures, photographers and journalists the exhibition "Egyptian Tales" was opened. From today, it works from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until September 19. Welcome!
