35 kilometers from the Bulgarian city of Dobrich Bulgarian archaeologists discovered the Alanian necropolis. This was reported to the South Ossetian-Bulgarian Friendship Society by the Adviser to the Varna Community and Director of the Regional historical Museum of Dobrich Kostadin Kostadinov.

"We are very happy about this discovery - said Kostadin Kostadinov. - There are the same burials here, as in Alan catacombs in the Caucasus. That's impressive. "

The South Ossetian-Bulgarian Friendship Society was registered in 2006. The first chairman was an outstanding Ossetian scientist, Doctor of History, Professor Murat Sanakoev. After his tragic death by the decision of the general meeting of the participants, the Society was named after him.
