A surprise for the visitors during the opening will be the performances of children from the group for authentic folklore at the national community center “Saglasie – Napreduk 1870”. The house where the exhibition will take place was the house of a rich local man with sheep flocks in Dobrudja and workshops in Karnobat – Radil Kyorpeyu.

The museum, presenting the life in Kotel during the Renaissance, consists of two buildings. The big house was built in 1872 by craftsmen from Tryavna. The building is two-story, with a large cellar. There was a party hall, a bedroom with a fireplace, a maid room and a living room, whose curly stars carpet impressed the visitors.

I love to travel because of the encounters with diverse people and cultures and the chance to touch other worlds. And this can happen even without leaving the borders of your own country. For example, at a festival, you can travel thousands of years and dozens of borders without leaving your place. For me, the journey is not only beautiful landscapes and ancient landmarks but also thousands of human stories. Let's learn them together.
