Historical Museum, Samokov

4.4
Despite its small size, Historical Museum offers an impressive range and quality of exhibits. You'll find a nice selection of souvenirs at the entrance. Inside, the exhibits cover the period between the Thracian times and the 20th century. The museum remains an ideal place for a quick history lesson about the area, with friendly curators ready to answer any questions and explain the general layout of the collection. Enjoy the permanent display, featuring works of local 20th century painters, or admire the building itself, constructed in the 1930's specifically to house the museum. Plan my Samokov trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The history of the city's development, the model of iron production is presented. A rich collection of icons of the local school of painting. A pleasant place, suitable for excursions to schoolchildren. Would like to see a description in Russian language as well.

  • Wonderful atmosphere. Around the building there is already that see-part of the colon, marble slabs. The museum itself is small-on 2 floors, but with complex have enough parking rich Exposition; There is a gift shop inside with crafts made of stone. The Museum attendants very attentive, we liked it. Visit to the Museum can be combined with a stroll in the Centre, "chadr cheshma" at the bus station and "Sarafska House"
