The old mosque "Eski Dzhamiya"
The most impressive in this mosque is that recent archeological excavations revealed the foundations of a medieval Early-Crhristian church in the basement and of a Thracian sanctuary. Taking photos is not allowed inside the monument, a cd (only in Bulgarian) showing the works before and after the restoration is given for free to the visitors at the ticket office though. Entrance fee 5 lv.
Stara Zagora Art Gallery
Art lovers will find the exhibited collections very interesting! Works of local artists are exhibited on the first floor. In the ground floor the Tourist Information Office of the Municipality of Stara Zagora provides accurate information on the sights of the town.
Regional Museum of History
Except the magnificent exhibits on all of the three floors, and especially those ones at the basement, where this is the only section of the museum where thera are no restrictions of taking photos, don't miss to enjoy a coffee at the museum's cafe with view on the original remains of the main street of the Roman city of Augusta Trayana.
Cathedral of Saint Martyr Demetrius
The cathedral was built between 1859 and 1862. Many of the important events in the city's history during the Bulgarian Renaissance are connected with this church, so this is the reason that at least two of them are represented in it's mural paintings.
Zagorka Beer Museum
Although it isn't exactly a museum, there are trained guides who showcase the beer production process, which is a rather unknown process in its details. It is very interesting and funny because at the end the visitor can have a beer tasting accompanied by delicious snacks at the tasting hall, plus the fact that a special gift is offered to everyone! Buy tickets for 6 lv. at the cafe of the brewery. The guidance starts at fixed hours and it takes about 1 and 1/2 hours including beer tasting. Try it, highly recomended!
Neolithic Dwellings Museum
This small museum is about a dwelling from the New Stone Age, that dates from the 6th millennium BC. What is presented is the ground floor of a two-storey house of that times. Someone has to imagine a lot about the initial situation because written information is given only in Bulgarian. A small, interesting yet, presentation of several types of ceramics is available at the basement of the museum.
Church of Holy Trinity
This church with impressive wall paintings was built at the same time with the church of Saint Martyr Demetrius.
