The house is typical for that time and region built in the beginning of XIX century. It is not big one – only has 3 room although the family wasn’t poor. The furniture is typical for that period of time, there is a steel bed and only 19 beds like that they had in the town.
The exposition hall is also interesting, there are facts for the poet’s life, some of his poems and own stuff.
We had a nice talk with the keeper and everything was for free, even the entrance. We were very amazed of that and she said that the museum has never ever taken fees but unfortunately the Municipality has accepted to takes entrance fee starting from May 2010.
The Monastery of St.Atanasii is situated 12 km south of Chirpan just above the village of Zlatna livada. Unfortunately the road is not good with lots of holes on it and you should be careful. Anyway it worth it going there and just look around. In the yard is the small church and just behind it there is a little river passing. On the other side of the river there is a rock and a hole in it. It is said that The Saint inhabiting this hole and people go there for health and welfare.
It is also said that the monastery is the oldest in Europe. Its celebration is on 02.05.
Here is its website in Bulgarian but with Google chrome can be easily translated.
The Central garden is one of the fewest places nice for walk in the town. Just nice for a walk and a talk with friends
A small bar in the center of Chirpan. We stopped for a sandwich, they also offer pizza. The owner is working by himself and was very positive and smiled guy. There are 4 tables inside and probably 5-6 outside but it looks like a bar and the sandwiches were good. If I stay in the town for the night I’d love to go in Déjà vu and have a drink.
Everybody has heard for Penny market, they came soon in Bulgaria in a dozen of small towns. These places really need the supermarket cause they only had little shops and as you know Penny is really cheap.
