Park - Museum Vladislav Varnenchik, Varna - There is a very old story about a historic event, dating back to the XV century. On November 10, 1444 a mixed Christian army, comprising of Hungarians, Polish, Czechs, papal knights, Bosnians, Croatians, Bulgarians, Romaninas and Routeni (Old Russians) fought a heavy battle near Varna against the Turks. Many a life were lost. More than half of the soldiers from the united army, together with the king of Hungary and Poland Vladislav III Yagelo (Varnenchik) perished.
In memory of the people, who sacrificed their lives in the name of freedom, on the place of the heroic battle there was built the park-Museum Vladislav Varnenchik. The Museum is a memorial complex. Plenty of weapons and accoutrements are exhibited in its halls: armours, chain armours, helmets, swords, spears, halberds, arbalests, maces, shields, etc. In the park of the Museum there is an original Thracian Tomb, dating back to the IV century A.D. and a mausoleum of king Vladislav Varnenchik.
