  • Kajtaz house is in the street of the same name and it is probably built at the end of 16th or at the beginning of the 17th century. Its original form has been preserved. The house belongs to town dwelling architecture, and it is the most beautiful living complex built in Turkish times, with separate houses for men and women. High walls protect it from strong sunshine and from people from the outside looking in. Valuable carpets can be seen on the floors of large rooms, and numerous books in Arabic have been preserved. It is made of stone and wood.
  • Owner of the house and guide is extremely friendly and tells a very interesting story
