Even today you can see many settlements in Bulgaria with the typical cobbled streets and perfectly preserved houses with wooden balconies and small windows, painted in bright colours.
Wood, stone and limestone were the basic construction materials. The interior of the houses is very intimate.
The earthen floors, the little fireplaces, the wood-carved ceilings, the low doors and the window seats are characteristic for this architectural style.
In Koprivshtitsa, Plovdiv, Tryavna, Kotel, Melnik and many other places in the country you can see some fine examples. There you can feel the magnificent beauty created by unknown Bulgarian master-hands.
