Dear teachers and parents,

You are welcome to visit the sites of the Historical Museum – Balchik, where you and your children/students can experience an amazing day. Especially for you we have developed educational-activity programs. The museum is the place where your child from an early age can get involved in learning about the traditions of his/her clan and of society as a whole, as well as for a meaningful leisure time. It is a way to instill in children the necessary attention to our historical and cultural heritage.

In July and August in the sites of the Historical Museum – Balchik, together with the Community Centre “Svoboda – 1897” in Gurkovo village, a summer academy for children of different ages is held, which gives the opportunity to the young participants to get in touch with Bulgarian life and culture. For more information visit the Summer Academy website and the Community Center’s Facebook page:
