Plovdiv, the old town

In this post I’m going to show you small part of Plovdiv (the old town). The area itself is an architectural treasure and our government is trying hardly to preserve it as it was years ago.

Most of the buildings there were build in the beginning of 18th century made of wooden columns, clay bricks and stone roof-tiles. In the past you could easily recognize rich people by their houses. The large size of the house was not necessarily an indication for wealthy residents . Back in the day it was more important to live in a colorful and artistically painted home rather than a big one.

Today most of these houses are well known as museums. Some other ones are trying to offer accommodations and show to the visitors how people were living in the past there. Walking on the streets you can find many artists selling fine art paintings, some others who offers cheap sketches, lots of hand-made souvenirs and many more.


Little info about the picture taken

This old house was turned into a historical museum by the mid 19th century. At the moment you can enjoy an exposition of the Bulgarian national revival in there.
