Regional History Museum ‘Stoyu Shishkov’ (Smolyan)
We invite you to visit the largest museum in the Mid- dle Rhodopes.
We offer to your attention the permanent expo- sition ‘Cultural and Historical Heritage of the Rhodope Region from Antiquity to Modern Times’ with over 1500 unique exhibits, included in two major divisions – ‘Archaeology’ and ‘Ethnography’. Temporary exhibi- tions are presented periodically.
Archaeological  ndings prove the early habita- tion of the mountain and follow the speci c features of material and non-material heritage left behind by the local population since the end of Paleolithic till Late Middle Ages.
You will be enchanted forever by the wealth and uniqueness of the colours of the mountain and of the mastery of the Rhodopes craftsmen, while the cosmic chimes of the 100 sheep bells will fascinate you with the originality of their music.
A visit to the Regional History Museum ‘Stoyu Shishkov’- Smolyan is the easiest way for you to get acquainted with the millennial history of the Middle Rhodopes, preserved over the centuries into the pre- sent and well-kept for the future.
