Kosovo Houses

The small village of Kosovo, where a complex of traditional Bulgarian houses with over 150 years of history, is hidden deep in the Rodopi Mountain. As cultural and historic monuments, the houses have preserved the authentic architecture and spirit of the Bulgarian Renaissance. In the past, some of the buildings had served for public purposes, such as schools. Others are highly valued for their architecture specifics, brought by pioneers in the Bulgarian 19th century, such as the great Renaissance master – Hadji Georgi Stanchovski.

A new life for the old houses was given by Hristo and Svetlana Ralevi, who restored the buildings and attracted hundreds of tourists to the village. Their project was implemented in 2006 with a loan of EUR 350 000 from the Bulgarian Development Bank.
