The historic museum of Plovdiv is presented with four big departments founded in different years and unified in 1993. They trace back the historical past of Plovdiv and Plovdiv Region from the early Ottoman period (15th to 17th century) up to the present. “The Bulgarian Lands from 15th to 19th Century and the Bulgarian National Revival Epoch” exposition was created in 1954. It can be seen in the house of the rich Plovdiv merchant, Dimitar Georgiadi. The house was built by the Rhodope master, hadji Georgi Hadjiyski, in 1848. Owner of the house was the rich Plovdiv merchant-tailor, Georgi Kendindenoglu, who demised it as a marriage portion to his daughter, Helena, for her marriage with Dimitar Georgiadi. The exposition represents the early Ottoman period (15th – 17th century) and the resistance of the local population against the alien rule. Special attention is paid to the epoch of the National Revival. In separate halls one can see documents, personal belongings and valuables which are related to the important people of the city. The development of the national liberation movement led by Rakovski, Levski and Botev is traced back very closely. The second floor parlour and rooms impress with original wood-carving works and rich ornamental murals.

now thats what i call architecture.
this building is just calling, crying, shouting out loud to be noticed and to make sure it stands out among all the others.
so unique and so different, some may think its on the ugly side of the scale, but not me.
a truly great subject to post for TE.

I remember this building in Plovdiv. It's certainly the most colourful in the old town! And its red colour makes it even more stand out because it's located next to a building with a very dark facade. Here we see also a very small part of it.
Excellent capture of the many wonderful architectural decorations.
It's really an architectural gem of a museum.
Best regards, Paul

What a beautifully unique building, and your point of view is perfect to give it a great sense of majesty. The colour suits perfectly and I really adm the painted details over the windows. Tis looks to be on quite a steep hill too, so compliments to the architect for getting it appearing so balanced. Really nice shot, thanks.
All the best

Sharpness and clarity is very nice.
Excellent composition, also a very nice subject.
Pleasant for look at. TFS.

ένα πολύ ωραίο και εντυπωσιακό αρχοντικό που, ως μουσείο σήμερα, διατηρείται σε άριστη κατάσταση. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ το στενό καδράρισμα και η γεωμετρία που κυριαρχεί στη σύνθεσή σου. Τόσο τα αδρά επαναλαμβανόμενα μοτίβα όσο και τα λεπτά στοιχεία της διακόσμησης παρουσιάζονται με άριστη ευκρίνεια. Το ουδέτερο φως και τα έντονα χρώματα δίνουν μια γραφιστική διάσταση στην παρουσίαση. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,

Beautiful building, combining fine wood, plastered with that orange color, ideal decoration of the paintings on the windows, a magnificent POV that shows him completely.
Very good brightness and sharpness with beautiful textures.
Well done. I love it.
