    Pashovata Kashta (Pashov's house)

    Pashovata Kashta

    Pashov's House was built in 1815 and has eight premises.

    Until recently it was where the historical museum of the town of Melnik was located. Now the house is empty and is close to start falling apart.

    When I asked one of the local people he told me that there is a problem with the ownership. The owners are many people and part of the house is still owned by the state. They can't agree what to do with the hose, so they left it just to stay like this without any maintenance.

    Sad story and typical Bulgarian one :(

    Uzunovata Kushta

    Built in the last century, the house is a former Turkish prison. It has a patio and a large wooden terrace (chardak).

    The house is a national monument of culture from the Bulgarian National Revival Period and a hotel at present. :)))

    The Turkish Bath

    The Turkish Bath

    When I talked to the lady in the Historical museum and asked her about the Turkish bath she explained to me how to find it but she also told me that it is ruined and there is no point to go because there is not much to be seen since the plase is used by Boliarka hotel as a storehouse.

    And indeed, when I went there I found that the place is somehow sad to look at because it is actually used as a storehouse. They also had pluged in the bath the pipes of the hotel's airconditiner which I really find revolting.

    I went inside to take the pictures you will see here but I would not recommand you to do it. I almost broke my legs because the floor is covered with all sorts of crap.

    The Roman Bridge

    The bridge

    When I was heading for Melnik I checked up the web for some info and I read about the bridge but there was no picture. So, basically when I saw it I thought: Is that all...

    If you are expecting to see some kind of architectural wonder from the Roman period you will be severely disappointed :)

    The bridge is no longer than 10-15 meters long and is not in its best shape.

    It is nice to have a look at it, though.

    Houses huddled in the snow

    snow

    The climate of Melnik is very mild. However, because it's Bulgaria and Bulgaria means mountains and snow, it snows sometimes in winter. And then, just before the white blanket melts down into slush, we see a fairy-tale.

    Kordopulowa Kashta

    This is a museum of one of the oldest riches families in Melnik. It is operating now as a mesuem and still runs its wine cellar. The house is situated really high above the village and you could get a nice view over it. Here you can try the wine they make also and it is included in the price of the ticket for the mesuem (about 2 Euro)

    stroll along the main street and get impressed by the dozens of national revival houses. They are now shops, hotels, bars and restaurants.

    A Roman Bridge

    What a surprise! A girl that offered me accommodation in Melnik showed me a Roman bridge on the way to her house. My guide book didn't mention it.
