Geo Milev House-Museum

Lonely Planet review

Set around a garden, this house-museum contains manuscripts and paintings by locally born Milev (1895–1925). Despite losing an eye in WWI, Milev wrote poetry dealing with social issues, such as Septemvri, about the September 1923 agrarian revolution. His politics led Milev's work to be confiscated. Milev was arrested, put on trial, and then kidnapped by the police and murdered.

Contemporary artists also sell their work in the museum, which has a relaxing cafe in the garden courtyard.
