Gabrovo Things to Do: 10 reviews and 43 photos
Beautiful place to visit. Beautiful homes and it gives you an idea of life in this small community on 60 acres. The Balkan settlement life is displayed from the time of Bulgarian revival. Every mechanism in the handicraft shops is set in motion by the water and skillful masters make fineries, pottery, copperware, woolen braids, and wooden pots. The Ethnographic museum Etar is the first open air museum of this kind opened in Bulgaria. It was established on September 7th, 1964.
The cobble-stoned street has the flavor of worm bun, coffee and white sweet. Colored rugs shine over the balconies bearing the colors of the earth - green, blue, red and white. The stone fountains, the gas lamps, the clock tower, the white-wall houses and the taverns are authentic. For tourists, this is both an idyllic look back to the past and a new knowledge. The idea of the Etara belongs to architect Lazar Donkov - a patriot who devoted his life to the noble lifework.
