Deultum is the oldest Roman city of Bulgaria. It was founded in AD 70 and is located 17 km southwest of today’s city of Burgas on the Black Sea coast. It is one out of three Roman colonies in Bulgaria and out of two colonies in the Roman province of Thrace.

Deultum is the only archaeological site in Bulgaria recognized as “European cultural heritage” by the Council of Europe. The Roman colony has been regularly excavated over the last 30 years. The following structures have been unearthed so far: public baths, temple of the imperial cult, late antique fortress, street and sewage networks, private and public buildings, tumuli and flat graves.
