History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
The Krastata Kazarma is a former military facility of the Ottoman Empire. The barracks got its name due to its cross-shaped architecture. It is one of the cultural memorials of the region of Vidin, Bulgaria, today.
The building, constructed by Polish architects, was finished in 1801. It was used by four separate units, also by a unit of the Janissaries.
After liberation the building was used as court of law and as an accommodation building by the Bulgarian army. Today it houses the ethnographical section of the "Konaka" Museum.

  • A very interesting building and the story behind it is amusing. There wasn't an exposition yet but the caretakers were kind enough let us in to look around.
  • This is a place I've been trying to visit continuously in last five year - never working on weekends or national holidays. Just great!

  • Кръстата казарма е един интересен музей във Видин по път за замъка Баба Вида, който трябва да посетите ако сте там. Построена е от турски паша, с цел максимална отбрана, сградата е под формата на кръст с множество прозорци и входове. Входа беше свободен, а работното време стандартното . Жената ни разказва цял час интересни неща от историята на града та чак до рецепти за рибена чорба. В първата зала се разполага експозиция за рибиловните традиции в града и региона . На втория етаж в 5 зали са разположени експозиции за бит и култура на града.
