Bulgaria national revival period houses
Bozhentsi, Zheravna, Kovachevitsa, Dolen, Brashlyan, Stefanovo, Koprivshtitsa, and Melnik - nestled in beautiful countryside and preserving memories of bygone times, these architecture reserves keep the spirit and style of the past. You will be charmed by the romantic atmosphere and tranquility, losing yourself in the far-off days of the past among the Revival period neighborhoods and cobbled streets in the city of Plovdiv, old Nessebar, Kotel, Veliko Tarnovo, Sozopol, Tryavna, Lovech and many others.
The most charming point in these oases of the past is the Bulgarian Revival period house, amazing with the diversity of shapes it takes; you will see it tall and made of stone in the Rhodopes, white-painted in the Balkan villages, and weather-boarded along the sea coast – but invariably embellished with the colors of the beautiful Bulgarian nature, the traditional Bulgarian hospitality and the aesthetic taste of the Bulgarian woman.
The late Revival period houses in Plovdiv are influenced by a variety of ancient styles, traditions and cultures with an abundance of architectural decorations and paintings. Walls are painted in landscapes or decorative textile; ceilings are covered with wood-carved figures of the Sun; wide stairs lead to the second floor salons. Just take a look at some of the best must-see Revival-period houses - the Georgiadi House (1846-48), the Koyumdzhioglou House (1846-48), today’s Ethnographic Museums in Plovdiv, the Hindliyan House, Nedkovich House, Kableshkova House and Oslekova House in the town of Koprivshtitsa, and the Pangalova House in Smolyan.
