“2 hours tour in vast history of the town”

Regional Historical Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 August 2016

The museum in Kyustendil is relatively small, and you can easily go through it even for 1 hr. But do not hurry. Give yourself some time to learn more about this town history. You will be amazed to understand how many cultures have been there, what they have left as traces. The collection of artifacts also tells the story well. I am a Bulgarian so you might think that I do tend to give higher rating just because this fact. I may be but I have also experience of many other countries and museums. What makes this place unique is that you will find very good collection from 4-5 century BC with Thracian artifacts, then huge evidence of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman times. That's a lot of things to see in one place. So do enjoy your stay there ... take baths and go to Osogovo mountains also!

We spend quite a long time in the kids area of the museum and it was really very interesting : with puzzels, ancient costumes and the way to recreate 5-6 ancient rooms with little furniture. Very interesting colleaction of coins. Kids had a blast

If you are ever in the city of Kyustendil visit this excellent museum about the history of the Kyustendil region. It is located opposite the big Hotel Velbush and close to the bus station. All the historical objects been well presented and you can get excellent guidance in English from Curator Dimitrina Dimitrova.

Went there with my girlfriend (who does not speak Bulgarian), luckily there was a worker there who spoke English very well (so I didn't have to translate). The museum was filled with many interesting artifacts and information about ancient civilizations that you have not learned in school! They also have a very nice coin collection and other very unique and interesting cultural artifacts such as coins and possible tracing origin of the snake used as a symbol for hospitals and so on. They also have an exhibit about the career possibilities in Kyustendil about a century ago. All an all, it was a great visit and you can learn great information from it! I would recommend it to anyone!
