Oslekov House information
The Oslekov House was built by Oslekov, a rich merchant who was killed in the line of duty during the 1876 April Uprising. It was built between 1853 and 1856, and is arguably the best example of Bulgarian National Revival-period architecture in Koprivshtitsa, with a triple-arched entrance, spacious interior, stylish furniture and brightly coloured walls.
Woodcarved ceilings, collections of 19th-century costumes, paintings and jewellery add to the experience. Several woodcarvings, some of which were bought during Oslekov’s extensive travels, are also on display.
