Lyuben was born here in 1834 and the exhibits reflect his lifelong work on behalf of Bulgaria and its people.

Comprising summer and winter quarters constructed some decades apart, the buildings are attractive with fine facades of different hues.

One of the most engaging displays is a large printing press that Karavelov bought in Serbia in 1871. Accompanying it are the Cyrillic typesetting letters and numerous documents it produced.

Grand portraits are displayed throughout, including a photograph of members of his family mourning his death from TB in 1903.

The house, where Lyuben and Petko Karavelov were born, is one of the 6 museums in Koprivshtitsa and it can be visited with a combo ticket.
This house-museum is divided into 2 parts, one with facts, belongings and life's timeline of Lyuben Karavelov - the famous Bulgarian writer, encyclopedist, journalist and ethnographer who took important part in the Bulgarian national-revolutionary movement.
In the other part are shown facts and information about Lyuben Karavelov's younger brother, Petko, who was a famous politician after the Liberation of Bulgaria from the Turks who also took part in the making of the Tarnovo Constitution and for a couple of years was a prime-minister.
A must visit for all Bulgarians.

The 'Lyuben and Petko Karavelov House' is the first of several house museums one will encounter in Koprovshtitsa, when coming from the main road. It is to the left of the little river that goes through the village and consists of an enclosed ensemble of three houses: a winterhouse, dating from 1810 and thus one of the oldest houses in Koprivshtitsa, a summerhouse with a veranda and a smaller storehouse.

It was the home of the Karavelov family, now named after two brothers, who got down in history as two men, who dedicated their lives to the cause of an independent Bulgaria. Lyuben mainly as a journalist, Petko, the younger brother, as a politician.

There are interesting exhibits to be seen here like an old printing press or the desk of Petko Karavelov, when he served as Bulgaria's prime minister. I also kept studying the various information boards and was especially intrigued - having among my ancestors Greek merchants from Plovdiv-Philippoupolis - by the comments about Lyuben Karavelov's time at a Greek school of that city. So it says: 'He witnessed the cruelty of both the Greeks and the Turks. The city's residents were known to be largely dominated by anything Greek. Living there Karavelov experienced the derogatory and disdainful attitude of teachers to him and all that was Bulgarian.' All this made Lyuben Karavelov exclamate: 'Bulgaria should get free from the Greek clergy and the Turkish yoke.'

This is a house of Lyuben Karavelov, a Bulgarian writer. When I visited this house taking picture wasn't allowed, but we can learn about him at this museum. The inner yard with big tree and Karavelov's monument was impressive.

Take the time and visit all the museum houses. Each house tells a different story - roots of prosperity, free spirit, creativity, the educational force, national pride, dignity etc.

The cost is 3 leva individual or you buy the packaged deal - see all 6 museum houses for 5 leva ($3 or 2.50€). That is super cheap, cheaper than any other museum in EU.
The house is beautiful and you can learn briefly about Karavelov. Worth your visit. I added a picture of the map and this house is #7.
