Overview

Sandanski has occurred and developed on the ruins of the Early Byzantine town. Remains of four Episcopal basilicas were found in Sandanski. The central Episcopal basilica dates back to the period of the 5th - 6th century AD and impresses visitors with its unique mosaics. The archaeological museum of the town was built on the foundations of the basilica of bishop Yoan.

The museum shows a small part of Roman history but a lot more is to come as the archaeological works are not finished.

If you come to Sandanski or near it, you should visit this place. Basilica is magnificent and some parts are really well preserved.

nice reconstruction on the old stones. But the new structure is not correnspondent to the old one, even the material used are very different. The new part is in glass and stainless steel, but just this contrast is the caractheristic of this archeological Museum.

A nice little collection of local artifacts, though there is not much to do without a guide to clarify it all.
