The National Ethnographic Museum in Sofia has a splendid collection of ethnic clothing from around Bulgaria. It is a unique collection of folklore and is well presented in the former Royal Place. There is plenty of reading stuff to go with the collection. There is also a few DVD’s to watch and music to listen to. So take your time and imagine how all these items were created by hand many years ago. It is a very colour full exhibition of rugs and clothing, spinning wheel and looms. I just loved the bead work and especially the hunter’s outfit. There is also a remarkable bride, groom and priest outfit not to be missed. This is the best collection of Bulgarian textiles I have seen so far.
