We visited a few of these homes, but this was the best. The home is tastefully decorated and well-preserved, with bright colors inside and out. A fee is required to take photos with a camera, but photos with a phone are allowed without fee.

Only a garden separates (or connects) the Balabanov House with the Hindliyan House, the only mansion open to the public in old Plovdiv, whose outer walls are painted in blue. Otherwise it looks like a typical Ottoman and Bulgarian Revival style house with the protruding...More

This house shows how it might have been furnished when it was occupied by its first owners. Interesting that the house had hot and cold running water in the bathroom.

Hindlian is a beautiful example of a house from the Bulgarian Revival period. As one of the few houses the preservation was quite good, so it's not completely new (as many are). It is the only house with a bathroom, that resembles a Turkish hamam....More

Saw it on a tour and wow! So beautiful, I really advise to pay at the door for a tour if you are not with an organized tour because you are not going to appreciate it otherwise. Hindlian was a baller
