Bulgarian Transport Museum

The Transport Museum in Rousse, Bulgaria, is situated on the river bank of the Danube, and is unique for the country. It is hosted in the building of the first railway station in Bulgaria, built in 1866.

The exhibition is laid out in two parts - within the railway station, and on the outside. Outside of the building there are a couple of steam engines, various types of carriages, including the personal carriage of king Ferdinand of Bulgaria, the carriage of the Turkish sultan, and some other interesting exponents.

The museum was labelled as the National museum of railway transport and communications on 26 Jun 1996, commemorating the 100th anniversary of railways in the country. The museum's building was announced to be a historical record. Exponents of the museum were used in the films: "Capitan Petko Voivoda", "Records of Bulgarian uprisings", and the Russian-Bulgarian production "Turkish gambit".
