Daskalov's House

Daskalov's House is an early Revival Tryavna house. It was built between 1804 and 1809 by Dimiter Oshanetsa and Ivan Bochukovetsa. In 1808 the two builders made a bet on the wood-carved ceilings. It took the craftsmen over six months to carve the suns on the ceilings. The suns remain an unattainable achievement of the wood-carving art in Bulgaria to this very day. The house is the only specialized museum of wood-carving in Bulgaria.
