Noah's s Ark is being constructed at Bulgaria's Black Sea coast. The project was launched by a private organization run by the historian Nikolay Kunchev. The complex is to be ready in March next year. The archeological exposition is situated next to coastal resorts Sunny Beach and Nessebur and is thirty kilometers away from Burgas airport. The first stage of the project has already been completed. The idea was born some two years ago, following the scientific expeditions of William Ryan and Walter Pitman and oceanographers from Bulgaria, Russia and Turkey, in the Black Sea. The researchers presented evidence of a bursting flood about 7,500 years ago in what is now the Black Sea. This, some say, supports the biblical story of Noah and the flood. The Noah's Ark exposition will also tell about interesting archaeological findings in Bulgaria and thus is planned to become the most famous site in Bulgaria.
