The Small Town Of Tryavna

Tryavna, Bulgaria

Tryavna is situated some 40 km south of Veliko Tarnovo and is the most important artistic centre in the region. In the old part of the town you will come across many typical 19th-century houses which carry all the significant traits of the historical period they were built in. Although their facades are well-preserved and nice to look at, the thing that really impresses is their interior decoration. It flaunts some fine wood carvings and wall paintings that were made by the best in business – the representatives of the Tryavna Artistic School. This was one of the most popular artistic groups during the National Revival Period which majored in wood carving and icon painting. The best example of their work is kept in Daskalov House. There tourists will have the pleasure to see the two most exquisite and elaborate wood-carved ceilings in the country.
