Ivan Vazov House-Museum information
Bulgaria’s best-loved author, Ivan Vazov (1850–1921), lived at this house, now a museum , from 1895 until his death. Vazov wrote Under the Yoke, a classic of Bulgarian literature based around the 1876 April Uprising against the Turks. Several rooms have been restored to their early-20th-century appearance, and in the study, you can even meet Vazov’s beloved pet dog, Bobby, whom Vazov had stuffed after he was run down by a tram. Downstairs, there’s a small exhibition of photographs and documents, though labelling is only in Bulgarian. You’ll need to ring the doorbell to gain admittance.
