Not too long ago (I think 2003) the Bulgarian News Network announced the discovery of fourth-century Christian tombs in downtown Sofia. Workers laying down new steam-heat pipes came across the burial chambers. One of the supervisors said at the time: “The tomb is unique because it contains incredible accumulations of cultural and historical information.” He would not, however, divulge any details. The tomb is located underground in front of the entrance of Sofia’s ancient St. Sofia church at the heart of the city.

I was wondering what ever happened with the story. A Google search tonight tells me that Business Hotel Varna, just a minute away from the cathedral, “offers all facilities for recreation and business. In the foundations of the hotel is found and renovated Early Christian Tomb from the west necropolis of Odessos.”

Does anyone know if this is the same burial place?
