Plovdiv

Regional History Museum Bulgarian National Revival Exposition

  ul. Tsanko Lavrenov 1      (+359)32 623378     14 Dec 2018
Situated in the lovely burnt ochre painted Georgiadi House in the Old Town, this wing of the city's history museum gives an in-depth view of life in the city from the 15th-19th centuries, when the population was under Ottoman occupation but fighting to establish its own national identity through language, religion and culture.
The house belonged to wealthy Bulgarian craftsman Georgi Kendindenoglu and was built in the typical symmetrical style where each floor had a central room ('hayet'', meaning life) from which four other rooms were accessed. Several of the rooms are furnished and decorated to recreate the colourful interior of a Turkish home, including low furniture for drinking Turkish coffee. Original costumes are on display.
