This is a family and house steeped in history from the 19 century. Excellent tour guide and lovely piano solo too. Worth a visit if you like history and seeing homes from that era.

The Museum is a typical wealthy house from the beginning of XX century - the Bulgarian renascence. The walls are beautiful painted and the roofs are wood carved. The house has unique for its time furniture and objects.

The House of Kaliopa is a very romantic place to visit. The authentic 19th-century environment transfers you back to the Belle Epoque. The curators and guides of the site were of great assistance for the better experience :)
