100 National Tourist Sites

The museum has an archaeological department (with two halls, a lapidary and a courtyard) and a permanent ethnographic exhibition. The exhibits reflect the material and spiritual culture in the region of Hisarya from the V-IV millennium BC. to the late Middle Ages-XIV century. Of greatest interest from the prehistoric period are the archaeological finds discovered during excavations of the Neolithic settlements in Hisarya and the village of Chernichevo – clay vessels, clay idols, stone axes, flint knives, war balls. Among the specimens of Thracian culture, which received considerable attention, can be seen fragments of vessels of imported Greek pottery and the coins minted on the island of Thassos, in the cities of Cyzicus, Enos and Neapolis, which prove the trade contacts of the Thracian tribes with the ancient Greek cities -colonies along the Aegean coast.

The greatest place in the exposition is occupied by the objects reflecting the Roman culture in the region and more specifically the heyday of the Roman city of Diocletianos, located near the Hissar mineral springs and an important resort and healing village in IV-VI.
The archaeological museum has a permanent ethnographic exhibition, reflecting the life, customs and livelihood of the population in the region of Hisarya from the Renaissance to the present day. The museum offers specialized guided talks in Bulgarian, English and Russian. A guided tour to the most attractive exposed cultural monuments in the Hisarya Archaeological Reserve is also available.
