The exhibition will be held within the opening of the renovated ancient Villa Armira near Ivaylovgrad.

Bulgaria and the Mosaics was created by the Balkan Heritage Foundation in collaboration with Bulgarian museums and specialists in the field of art history and archaeology. It will be presented by the Foreign Ministry’s Cultural Institute Director Snezhana Yoveva-Dimitrova. The exhibition consists of two components, printed and digital, and reveals the richness of the mosaic heritage in Bulgaria through impressive details from different periods.

The exhibition's visitors will have the opportunity to take part in interactive demonstrations and explore the renovated observation tower, illuminated and equipped with an external elevator. A light show and concert programme with the DEEP ZONE Project will round out the evening.

The ancient Villa Armira, dating back to the 1st-3rd century, will be officially opened after a large-scale renovation, funded by a project of the Operational Programme "Regions in Growth". The villa is the richest private Roman palace in Bulgaria and is recognized as a monument of national importance, included in the UNESCO tentative list.

The official opening ceremony will be led by actor Simeon Vladov, followed by the performance titled A Constellation Called Love and musical operetta performances by Marta Kukularova.
