100 National Tourist Sites

The “Ivan Vazov” house-museum in Berkovitsa is the place where Ivan Vazov lived while he was the chairman of the District Court in Berkovitsa (March 7, 1879 – September 18, 1880). About this period of his life, the patriarch of Bulgarian literature shares:
“My life in Berkovitsa coincides with one of the most fruitful periods in my work”. Here he created the poem “Gramada”, the short story “Belimeleets”, the short story “Mitrofan and Dormidolski”, etc.

The house was built at the beginning of the 19th century in a style and architecture typical of the Bulgarian Renaissance.

The house-museum “Ivan Vazov” was opened in 1957. After a major renovation, the new exposition was opened on February 15, 1980, and in 1964 the house was declared an architectural and building monument of culture of national importance.
