    The Samara Flag Monument

    by Androidius Updated Mar 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This monument is located on a hill at the east end of the town and is dedicated to the russian troops from the town of Samara who liberated the town in Russian-Turkish War (1877-1878). It consists of pretty impressive concrete flag, it's really huge, and also few rather gigantic figures of soldiers.

    GEO MILEV HOUSE

    by queensali Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Geo Milev House and gardens, dedicated to the life and writings of the famous Bulgarian poet and writer, are located at 37 Geo Milev Street in Stara Zagora. Inside the home are trappings set as they were when Geo Milev lived there from birth until he left for university study at the beginning of the century. A newly build section, with photos and collages of his works gracing the walls, provides an intimate hall for films, performances and other cultural events.

    NEOLITHIC DWELLINGS

    by queensali Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Remains of two houses from a settlement of the Neolithic age, dating from the 6th millenium BC, in Stara Zagora are considered the best preserved from this early time uncovered, to date, on the European continent. Witness the preserved ovens, grain storage pots, primitive mill for grinding grain, pottery, tools, etc. A museum exhibiting pottery, jewelry, tools, etc. from the numerous archeological excavations in the Stara Zagora region is located on the lower level.

    The old mosque "Eski Dzhamiya"

    by bakalapoe Updated Mar 24, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    by bakalapoe Written Mar 23, 2014

    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

    by bakalapoe Written Mar 23, 2014

    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

    by bakalapoe Written Mar 23, 2014

    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

    by bakalapoe Updated Mar 24, 2014

    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.
