The Historical Museum


The Historical Museum is situated in the old central part of the town. It is housed in the Prokopovata Kashta (a house, which is an architectural monument of national importance). The archaeological materials, the traditional craft products, the unique collection of traditional local costumes and pieces of home-made fabric, the numismatic collection, the photographs and the documents show the rich and varied historical heritage of the region.

Near the museum, in a house built in 1894 (a cultural monument), the richest private ethnographic collection in the Pirin region, which was collected with decades by Mr. Zafir Kanchev, can be seen.
