The building and the garden are as interesting as the Museum. The lady at the reception was kind and we took some pictures, even without paying for it, as requested on an information board.

What an amazing 1847 architecture and building, surrounded by trees roses and beautiful jars. We loved it. Close by don't miss Sts. Konstantin and Elena" Church... this is the most beautiful one in the old town. The outside and the interior has great painting and light. We happen to be there for a Christening.. Merveilleux!

It is located in the old town. The building and its yard are very beautiful. When i visited there was a seminar in the top floor and it was closed for the visitors, so we only visited the ground floor for free. It is a typical ethnographic museum with agriculture tools, some traditional jewelery and house equipment. There was not... More
