VRC Bulgaria: Varna & Black Sea

Of course no photos were allowed in the Varna Archeology Museum so I had to download two from their website.  I had never seen jewelry placed on a skeleton where it was discovered.  This skeleton in Tomb 23 of the Eneolithic necropolis and the jewelry are from the late Eneolithic period (~4500-4000 BC).  This museum is literally a treasure trove.

We got to touch the Black Sea but it was deemed too rough for the planned cruise.  We had to be satisfied with the placid Lake Varna.
