Architectural Monument

Pop Angel House Museum - Tryavna, Bulgaria

The oldest architectural monument on the territory of the municipality of Tryavna. It is assumed that it was built during the second half of the 18 century. In old times its inhabitants practiced a rare artistic craft – kazaslak. With silk and fine wool threads they made braids for adorning the clothing, belts, and decorations for horses. Kazas craftsmen from Tryavna made the tackles for the horse of Haydar Pasha, the Turkish sultan Abdul Medjid. The tackles for the horse of the first Bulgarian knyaz of the third Bulgarian kingdom – Knyaz Alexander of Batemberg were a gift by the kazas guild of Tryavna.

This house was one of the hiding places of the great Bulgarian revolutionary Vasil Levski, during his visits to Tryavna for works of the Committee. Even today one can see here the secret places where he hid from danger.
