  • A well preserved house of what used to be old pan family home. It is a witness of the amount of influence both Byzantine and Ottoman empire had on this region for well over 1600 years during the enslavement of the Balkans. There are hints of Islamic Azerbaijani culture too, mostly musical instruments and decour. Well preserved, now giving tour guides for tourists. Fun fact: city of Pirot was once called Pyrgos when the Greek ruled these lands and Serbia was called Serbistan under Islamic Ottoman rule.
  • A place to visit in any case preferably on the first day. Interesting history presented by the museum guide that gives a lot of info about the area with picturesque stories about little Rista (once owner f the house) and his way of handling with the Turkish authorities and by telling the story of various rooms and things exhibited in the house. At the end visitors have an interesting and quite realistic impression of the history of the place and many useful info about the location and what to visit, taste and feel when while they will stay in the surroundings. Interesting for kids too. Fluent in Serbian, English, German, Bolgarian and probably even more.
