It's a dazzlingly beautiful house, perhaps the prettiest of them all in the old city. But, as with the others houses, once you're inside its a case of wander and wonder. Why can't they simply put a little information discreetly on display for poor peasants like us to digest. There was so much I wanted to know. Perhaps if we'd been on an official tour we'd have learnt more. I saw no offer of a guide there, though I suspect it may be possible, having read some of the other reviews.
Overall, a rather frustrating experience.

This house is truly eclectic and has a fascinating story behind it - the Armenian merchant who fell in love with India and came back to Plovdiv to live. He built his home with a lot of Indian influence, mixed with touches from all over Europe. Some touches like the fountain that ran rose water in the reception room to perfume the ambience for his guests, the Roman style bath, and other details make this a special place. The lady who guided us had great knowledge and told an engaging story.

Wow. Touring this house-museum makes you want to be a merchant in Bulgaria at the time of the revival. Have a quick look at the pictures of the room presentations in this tripadvisor article and you see refinement and elegance everywhere. A must visit in Plovdiv

This house shows how it might have been furnished when it was occupied by its first owners. Interesting that the house had hot and cold running water in the bathroom.
