If you want to experience the tranquillity of a holy place and the museum, then you should definitely visit Bairakli Mosque, which has been opened as a museum. It is the only mosque preserved from the time of the Ottoman rule, which is a restored monument of culture. This is the so-called Old mosque, extensively reconstructed in the middle of the 19th century by the Bulgarian masters and painted around 1845 by the icon painters from Samokov in the ornamental style of Samokov School of Arts. The photo exhibition, located inside the mosque, has reflected the changes in the urban landscape at the end of the 19th and during the first half of the 20th century.
