Unlike some of the other house museums, which are great buildings but turned into galleries, Atanas Krastev House Museum is very much a house, with dining room, living room, and study, but with interesting and mostly contemporary artwork all around.

Krastev was both a conservationist, who helped get Plovdiv its historic status, a painter, and a friend to many of Plovdiv’s artists.  His self-portraits and personal collection of (mostly) abstract 20th century Bulgarian paintings are displayed. The cosy, well-furnished house is strewn with personal mementos, and the terrace offers superb views. The garden also houses exhibits.
