  • The Philippopolis art gallery is a small private art museum situated in a very beautiful old building (ground floor and floor), in the old-town area of Plovdiv. The museum is dedicated to Bulgarian ar...  more »
  • It is essentially an exhibition of paintings by Bulgarian artists of the period mainly between 1800 and 1900 end end. But the show is not the main attraction. The best part is the big White House, with the interiors were at 1800, the carved wooden ceilings, polished floor, older furniture. Just start the climb up the Hill to the old town. The Interior is composed of two floors, entrance costs 5 lev 3 for students. The ride takes little time and in my opinion worth it!! If the House has also a nice restaurant style old times with a garden and views of the modern city (the view is not nothing). I can't tell what the food.

  • Gallery- splendid place. We went there for a second time. Restaurant- delicious food! The waitress informed us wrong about a cake and after she served it we said that it was not what we had expected and she didn't change it. So, we are not thinking of coming back to the restaurant.
  • Good museum not actually a museum but most likely a gallery as most of the things inside it are paintings.
  • Restaurant with nice view, decent food but bad service
