The display is located in the old restored Turkish bath/”hamam”/, which dates to the end of the 16th century. The hamam were important elements of the Ottoman city and occupied a special place in the architecture of the late Middle Ages. In general, they could be public and private. These differed not only in terms of architecture, size and construction methods, but also in terms of the equipment they used. In some of them the water was heated in a boiler room, while others used the heat of springs running below them. The former Turkish bath today houses the Maritime Museum with valuable exhibits depicting the life in the oldest settled population in these areas, a Thracian golden treasure and rare artifacts related to ancient navigation near the shores of Dobrudzha.
