“Bulgarian Revival” Exposition is set in the house of the rich merchant of Plovdiv Dimitar Georgiadi, which was built in 1848 and traces the history of Plovdiv during the period from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Rich documentary and photographic material allows guests to submerge in the atmosphere of the city’s distant past – a time of foreign rule, but also a time of assertion of Bulgarians’ national identity, a time of fight for independent Bulgarian education, church and national independence.
