A golden treasure and a light drone show welcomed the guests of the second of the “White Nights of Razgrad” – a festival of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Traditionally, the evening is dedicated to the ancient heritage of Razgrad and is hosted by the Regional History Museum on the territory of the “Abritus” archaeological reserve.

Among the columns of the “Urbana” villa, the head of the “Culture, tourism and international activities” department in Razgrad Municipality, Katerina Ganeva, opened the concert of the “12 BAR BAND” group – with thanks to the specialists from the Regional History Museum, engaged during the two “White Nights of Razgrad ”, for the perfect organization of events.

Before the concert, in the Interactive Museum, hundreds of people – from babies to venerable adults, looked with interest at the 13 golden vessels from the Valchitran treasure from the fund of the Regional History Museum – Pleven. It was found exactly 100 years ago and is believed to be the largest found in Bulgaria, its weight is over 12 kg. It is dated to the 14th-13th century BC or the end of the Bronze Age. Some of the vessels have the shape of a disc or lids, others are cups, and one is composed of three joined vessels with a common handle. And the children also had fun with the game elements in the Interactive Museum.

A multicolored drone show illuminated the finale of the “White Nights of Razgrad”. The hundreds of spectators, not only on the arranged chairs and benches between the walls of the ancient fortress, but also on the neighboring hills and on the higher parts of the ruins, watched the impressive ten-minute drone light show “Abritus”, created by order of the Municipality of Razgrad. Swords like those of the Romans, the Golden Pegasus, the columns of Abritus, as well as the inscriptions “Razgrad” and “Abritus” glowed in the sky above the Roman fortress in different colors one after the other.

The “White Nights of Razgrad” festival is organized by the Municipality of Razgrad and the Regional History Museum.
