Me and my friends couldn't miss cycling in sunny November day.
A 4th-century family tomb was found in Sozopol a month ago, so we decided to go to the Budjaka area and look around.

We arrived in Sozopol. Friends from Tsarevo waited there and together we went to the Budjaka area.

We asked some local people about the new excavations, but we don't have luck to find exact remains.

After touring Budjaka, we headed for Harmani beach, where intensive archaeological excavations were made in the 1940s.

The graves in the early Christian necropolis found there are located on 7 floors in the dunes of the beach. Over 300 years on this beach were buried the citizens of Apollon, the largest Greek state on the Bulgarian lands.

They believed that dead people had to be buried with their possessions to use them afterlife. These vessels are richly decorated with the famous Greek painted ceramics. The Archaeological Museum of Sozopol has one of the richest collections of such ceramics.
