  • Astronomical Observatory and Planetarium
    stars and a special device can show the solar system as if seen from a distance of 5 billion km Foucault pendulum is suspended in the planetarium tower and it manifests rotation of the Earth around its axis In a small hall below visitors can watch the swinging of the pendulum In the first years following the building of the complex a comet finder was also installed on the observation platform During the autumn of 1998 the municipal council decides on reconstruction of the building of the planetarium Full substitutions of the thermo and hydro isolation as well as the water and power installation are planned The work is slowed down as some old plans are missing The reconstruction faces the fact that when built in the 60s not all construction norms were kept and now almost only the walls are left The expectations were that the renewed astronomy complex will meet the large number of visitors during the Sun eclipse in 1999 however financial difficulties delay the project for four years Finally on Aug 15th 2002 the renewed building of the Planetarium Nicolaus Copernicus was founded This is a very important event for the Day of Varna and in the ceremony in which participants are the Prime minister Simeon Saks Coburg Gotha the city mayor and regional governor deputies businessmen and many citizens The new project suggests a slight change in the outlook of the observatory The general architecture plan is unchanged but the author of the project arch G Savakov brings modern nuances The top of the tower of Foucault now has the form of semi sphere open to the sky The Foucault s pendulum is at a higher level convenient for observation from visitors both in and outside the buildung For adaptation of vision before a tour
