Price: $0.00
In Stock

It is an architectural complex of traditional houses and the oldest residential area in Smolyan’s Raykovo neighborhood. It presents various types of authentic houses from the 19th century. The ground level of a typical house in the area had an outer courtyard surrounded by stone walls that enclosed livestock and were also used for stacking firewood. A stairway lead from the courtyard to the floors above. On the upper floors, there usually was a window overlooking the floor below. This architectural feature was demanded by the small, narrow lots on which the houses were built. Mitkulishev Photography Ivan Mandevski © Photo: Svetoslav Todev
