There are numerous house museums here in Plovdiv, checking out the architecture is almost as interesting as the items displayed. This one is no exception. Near Nebet Hill, I really enjoyed my visit.

Beautiful old house packed full of Bulgarian history. Especially the top two floors. It really gives gives you a sense of how diverse Bulgaria was and also the different struggles it went through. Was amazed they put the small cannon on the top floor.

Great exhibitions.Love the building style of Old Plovdiv.Upon entering you are greeted by massive-wood interior and quite weird staircase. You can easily spend about 30 minutes inside.

Like for real! Every house in this town is different and unique! You go back in history just by staying here. Go to the museum and you will have even more culture around you
