  • The house is not the original one from the beginning of the 19th century, since that was demolished, but a faithful reconstruction from 1935 based in every detail on the original plans. This probably explains the great shape the house is in. Typical for the Revival Period in Bulgaria, my personal favourite were the wooden ceilings, fine Ottoman style. The only thing I didn't like is that the house is now used to host temporary art galleries in an attempt to mix the old with the new with mixed results in my opinion
  • "Look, a house!" Wow I guess if your place of origin has no cultural heritage (hint Sofia) sure, you might find it impressive and well-preserved. Entrance? 6lv. Pictures? 6 more lev. Thanks but no thanks. Go to Italy or Sweden instead if you want well-preserved, old houses.
