Ethnographic Museum in ancient Plovdiv is the best museum in the city, I think. I was there on the 2nd of August 2009 and the pics are from then. The atmosphere was perfect and the staff was so kind..... more »
A great place to learn more about life in the olden days in Bulgaria in general and in Plovdiv specifically. It's really worth to take a local guide in the museum to make the most of the visit, and it costs a mere 10 BGN (5 €). If you want to take photographs or film inside, you have to pay. The outside of the beautiful building and the garden with a very impressive tree are free to visit and to take pictures.
Large nobleman house, very elegant and with a splendid garden. Inside each room there is an exhibition showing info and objects relevant for Bulgarian traditional lifestyle. We paid 10 leva as a family ticket for 3. Views are nice and we enjoyed the garden.
