Vasil Levski Museum, Lovech

100 National Tourist Sites

The ethnographic museum complex in the old quarter “Varosha” consists of two houses. The mixture of styles – oriental and European in the Drasova house is fascinating: three-legged stools, a low table, a chest and… a box of cocoa “Milka” from Austria.
In the large living room, a minder with patterned rugs coexists with Viennese chairs, furniture and a Russian samovar.

A bedroom in which there is only one huge bedstead on which anywhere from 7 to 27 people have slept. In the Rash house, built in 1835, almost everything is already European: a high table and chairs, porcelain dishes, table lamps, a children’s rocking basket, German clocks, a sideboard, a bottle of Chanel perfume, the piano on which it is written the hymn “Go, people revived”, and personal belongings of this remarkable and generous intellectual Nencho Rashev.

But the most visited place in Varosha is undoubtedly the “Vasil Levski” museum, whose exposition was opened in 1954, and in 1967 it was moved to a newly built building. The activity of Levski and his associates is presented through photographs, sculptures and objects. Special of interest is the collection of the Apostle’s personal belongings: a scimitar and a small printing press with seven seals made by him by his own hands, similar to the Turkish ones. Also on display are Philip Totyu’s rifle, Hristo Ivanov’s saber – Golemia, Vasil Yonkov’s revolver and belongings of others The model of the covered bridge of Kolyu Ficheto, the portraits of participants in the legion and photos of the founders of the Bulgarian Revolutionary Central Committee in Bucharest attract attention.
