DEN-CuPID Intellectual Output 6 - Bulgarian Case Study
The identified case study is Varna historic centre, in Bulgaria.
This workshop focused again on heritage assets and their management, yet putting together some elements taught in the other workshops. Namely, it focused on the historic centre of the Bulgarian city of Varna. It is the second largest city of Bulgaria, one of the ten largest cities in the Balkans and a civic centre since antiquity. Varna has become famous for its gold archaeological finds dating from the Chalcolithic period; it was colonized by Greeks in the archaic period, acquiring the name Odessus. Its importance, mainly due to its location, continued throughout the Byzantine period. The city flourished in the Ottoman period and was liberated in 1878. Throughout the 20th century it developed into a major touristic centre, particularly for Russians and Balkan tourists. Testimonies of some of these historic phases are the monuments, buildings and museums situated within walking distance in the historic centre of the city. The way of linking one to another, of creating itineraries and thematic paths, of signposting, branding and creating incentive for visitors to follow them.
