The Balabanov House

Museums & Galleries

The Balabanov House is a remarkable example of Bulgarian Renaissance architecture.

Built in the 19th century by one of the most famous local merchants, the house had three owners and today bears the name of its last owner, the tradesman Luka Balabanov.

The Balabanov House was demolished to the ground in the 1930s. In 1971, the complete renovation of the house was planned in the same place where it existed until it was destroyed. The design was carried out on the basis of the book "The Plovdiv House" by architect Hristo Peev.

Today, the house is used as a museum, a cultural centre for exhibitions, theatre productions and concerts.

Why visit?

When re-building the house, a few bottles with inscriptions for the future generations were put in the foundations

Balabanov's House is an amazing place where you can propose to your loved one (it has actually happened a few times already!)

The second floor of the house is more spacious and bears a more opulent decoration as it was used for guests
