A temporary exhibition highlighting the most interesting discoveries of 2016 will be hosted by the National Institute of Archaeology in Sofia, starting Wednesday.
The institute is organizing the event for the tenth year in a row, together with 13 museums from around Bulgaria.

The opening is scheduled for 17:00 on Wednesday, February 15, at the National Institute of Archaeology with Museum on 2 Saborna Street in Sofia (meters away from the Presidency).
