Kordopulovata kashta is the biggest house of the Bulgarian Renaissance and was the home of a wealthy merchant who was trading in wine with many European countries of that time. Very interesting is the fact that the merchant himself owned very little vineyards. He used...More

Beautifully restored home of a wealthy merchant. I was practically alone. At the end, when you get to the cellar, you can taste their wines. The wine cellar is absolutely fascinating, with tunnels carved deep into the mountain.

This house is interesting with his architecture. Room for guest is 90 square metres. Glasses of windows are painted. This is the biggest house of the Bulgarian national revival. Its architecture is mixed from Bulgarian, Greek and Oriental style.
