Bulgarian Revival Art


Throughout the Bulgarian Revival period Plovdiv remained the biggest and most developed town in Bulgaria in terms of culture and economy. During that period the unique architectural ensemble of The Three Hills was created, alongside with a number of other valuable monuments of spiritual and material culture. The Regional Archaeological Museum displays rich collections of church plates, incunabula (early printed books), jewelry, belt buckles and belts, pottery and luxurious objects of high artistic value, dating from that period.
