Park Museum “Vladislav Varnenchik“ – Varna

The park museum „Vladislav Varnenchik“ in Varna is dedicated to the memorial battle near Varna, which took place on 10/11/1444. In the battle, the Christian army, led by the Polish-Hungarian King Wladyslaw III Jagiello, consisting of between 20,000 and 30,000 men, was defeated by the Ottoman army consisting of about 60,000 men. King Vladislav himself died in the battle. He was later nicknamed “Varnenchik” in memory of his sacrifice near Varna. A symbolic mausoleum, in memory of the king, was built at the site of the battle in 1935. Nowadays it can be seen in the Vladislavovo region of our sea capital, next to the Thracian tomb dating back from the 4th century BC. There is a symbolic sarcophagus of King Vladislav III in the mausoleum as it is not known where his body was buried after the battle. Since 1964, in the museum building, there is an exposition presenting the armament of the two armies, as well as paintings and sculptures depicting the memorial battle. Since 1996, there is another exposition -that of Colonel Peter Dimkov – the founder of the mausoleum and many other monuments in Varna, and among other things – a Bulgarian physician healer.
