Here are some updates of the Western Gate complex which is numbered as 7 on the map. After 3 decades, archaeological digs on the complex finally resumed and hopefully this complex will be eventually linked to the main complex.

Thank you for your interest

All remains will be preserved and some will be restored up to a certain degree.

For now the highlights of the digs are the following

-remains of late antiquity-early medieval churches
-the city's main east-west street
-remains of the Roman public baths
-some large houses including one with a mosaic (seen in the pictures above) and one with a marble floor and some columns

They also rediscovered or should I say re-excavated the Western Gate.

The next steps will be to excavate the complex right next to the one I showed in the pictures above and finally the area around the St. Nedelya Church, where most archaeologists say was located the palace of the governor of Serdica.

Some pictures of the excavations under the Basilica Saint Sophia.

They are not directly part of the project but are part of the municipality's general master plan for the remains of Serdica.

Enjoy

Not really related to the project, but ultimately some good news for the region.

This building in the background is called TZUM (Central Mall), which was built during the communist era. There are rumors that the National Historical Museum which is currently located in the city's outskirts, might be relocated in this building, which has a much larger exhibition area and is centrally located. Overall, this are great news for the area since it will be having three great historical museum complexes 3 mins away from each other.

1)National Historical Museum
2)Ancient Cultural & Communicational Complex Serdica
3)National Archaeological Museum
4)Sofia Historical Museum (to be opened in old municipal baths)

Some pretty interesting news today.

About 5 years ago, during the construction of the hotel Arena di Serdica in downtown Sofia, they uncovered the remains of an ancient Roman amphitheater. Not much has survived but nonetheless a good part of the foundations remains and the municipality currently wants to partially reconstruct the ancient buildings for its candidacy for the European Cultural Capital in 2019.

There are a few buildings located over the remains of the amphitheater, which would ultimately be torn down in order to make place for the recontruction.

Here is the ad that the municipality has raised up next to the plot. (picture was taken by Bulgariana)



the following pictures is of the remains behind the showed above ad.



Here are some pictures of the remains integrated in the hotel.







А large part of the building is still under the ground, with the southern part being the most promising in terms of preserved remains.
