The building is an ideal example of the architectural style - fortified house of the Bulgarian Revival Period (end of 18th century – beginning of 19th century). It was opened to visitors in 1977.
NIKOLA VAPTSAROV- MUSEUM
This house museum was the birthplace of Nikola Vaptsarov (1909–42), a well known antifascist poet and activist. His writings caused his arrest and torture by the fascist government. A great amount of photographs, hand written documents and Vaptsarov’s personal belongings are exhibited, while a short video, followed by an audio tape (English, French or German) provides meaningful background.
