Balkan Heritage Foundation, established in 2008

Balkan Heritage Foundation (BHF), Bulgaria is a non-profit cultural organization operating in the area of cultural heritage research, preservation, communication, management and education. Since its establishment in 2008 the Foundation has been active in Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro and North Macedonia.

In all of BHF’s work we seek to apply excellence and innovation, to build understanding and appreciation as well as to develop community-driven partnership, and inclusive collaborations. The BHF serves: local communities, international scholars and heritage specialists & keepers, students and connoisseurs from around the globe.


Through the “Our Heritage” Program  the Foundation conducts or supports projects in the field of archaeology, conservation and restoration of cultural properties, digital heritage as well as cultural heritage management and communication.

Campaigns for raising public awareness, development of policies, strategies and plans for preservation of cultural heritage, community service activities & camps and volunteer exchanges – they all fall under the “Advocacy & Community Service” Program.

The oldest program of the Foundation is  “Education” covering trainings and field schools in archaeology and heritage conservation, a master’s program  in Balkan and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology, and Fulbright exchange for students and researchers.

Within the “Meetings & Events” Program of the Foundation are organized and implemented exhibitions, conferences, online seminars, public lectures and other events to communicate and promote the Balkan cultural heritage, to disseminate knowledge about it and to back up the Foundation’s cultural policies.
