Sightseeing in Sofia

Ethnographic Museum (Etnografski muzei)

The museum, housed in the eastern wing of the former palace, gives an insight to Bulgarian folklore and traditions including Easter eggs and breads as well as costumes from various regions. Although started in 1878, many valuable exhibits were lost during the bombing in 1944 and probably the most interesting exhibit is the beautifully carved wooden ceiling.Unfortunately as in most Bulgarian museums, there are very few, if any, English transcriptions of the exhibits. Most museums do however offer English, German, French or Russian speaking guides.
