Museum of MosaicsIt is the only one of its kind in the country located in Devnya. Put on show in it are Roman and Early Byzantine mosaics from Marcianopolis. The museum has been erected onto the foundations, unearthed during excavations, of a big Late Roman time structure with mosaics from the 3rd-4th century (raised on the site of earlier buildings), which existed until the early 7th century. Some of the preserved multicoloured floor mosaics, can be seen where they had been unearthed, while the others - partially restored or conserved – have been placed onto new foundations.
