Ethnographical Museum information
Even if you don't have time to step inside, it would be criminal to leave Plovdiv's old town without glancing into the courtyard of this stunning Revival-era building. Well-manicured flower gardens surround a navy-blue mansion, ornamented with golden filigree and topped with a distinctive peaked roof.

The ground-floor displays of agrarian instruments are a shade less interesting.
