The village of Jeravna resembles a wreath spread over the southern slopes of two small hills in the Eastern Balkan Range.

Brooks run softly down its steep lanes. The village house with their broad eaves peak out behind high stonewalls. The majority are well preserved. All are modeled on the "wooden type" house prevalent in the entire region of the Eastern Balkan Range. A characteristic feature is that all Jeravna houses, without exception, face south - with extensive facades in the yard's northern part, far from the street when it passes south of them, and houses turned the other way, but close to the street if it runs to the north.

The older houses have single storey and made entirely out of wood. Later houses, with two stories, have their ground floor built of stone. The facades have clearly horizontal lines, emphasized by the forward brought second floor and the strongly jutting out eaves. They are entirely surrounded by verandas, leading to the living quarters, with the storerooms and hiding places behind them.

Rosettes, star-shaped figures, stylized plant and animal motifs decorate the cupboards, shelves, walls, ceilings and doors. Winding staircases, chapels, colourful rugs and cushions lend a still greater fascination to the Jeravna house.

Do not miss seeing the houses of Sava Filaretov (1851), Hadji Draganov (1851), Haltukov (1818), Todor Ikonomov (first half of the 19th c.), Roussi Chorbadji (18th-19th c.) and Matei Gendov (second half of the 19th c.), as well as the native museum house of the great writer and playwright of the start of the century Yordan Yovkov (late 18th c.). The large rooms in the Sava Filaretov, Roussi Chorbadji and Haltukov houses are exceptional achievements as regards the interior design of the Bulgarian "wooden type" National Revival period house.

Браво Мими!!! Французите сме ги минали.Унгарците са доста напред но както вървят нещата до нова година ще сме първи.Толкова народ цъка по броилките и не качват тук и това си е.И още не е дошла ваканцията.Тогава пък кой ще седне на компютър не виждам но след нея дано.Аз нямам снимки и се чудя от къде да кача, че и с модераторите се разправях и форума съм напълнил с препоръки да качват - никой не пипва.Ако ги събирам за революция пък изобщо не ги виждам.Отиде си Българията, нищо не става.

Ti mai si noshta pti4ka i ne spish.. ;-) Vidiah go, no ne te savetvam da si kupuvash Sony, ne i za fotoaparat. Ako iskash hubav fotoaparat kupi si go marka Nikon, Canon ili Pentax. Poslednata s koiato nie snimame e Pentax ist DL - kam dneshna data ve4e e star model i sega ne struva mnogo pari, a e mnogo dobra mashina. I kato si kupish niakoi obektiv za neia, ako mojesh da si pozvolish shte pravish mnogo dobri snimki. Razbira se ne e zle parvo malko da razu4ish ukazanieto za upotreba za da znaesh kakvi vazmojnosti ima i kak se polzva. Za poslednoto shte ti pomogne mnogo internet.. ima mnogo sites & forumi, kadeto mojesh da polu4ish zenna informazia. Ako niakoi moje da ti go kupi ot Germania, tam tehnika struva nai-malko, dori v Bulgaria e mnogo, ama mnogo po-skapo. A v Germania postoainno izlizat novi modeli fotocameri i pri tova na super izgodni zeni. Osven tova v Bulgaria se prodavat navsiakade stari modeli i pri tova na zeni mnogo, ama mnogo po-skapi otkolkoto v zapadna Europe. A zashto e taka samo te si znaiatt, nali samo na pe4elba obrashtame vsi4ko. Mojesh da otvorish: www.ebay.com Tam razgledai zenite na fotocamerite - prodavat se i novi i stari, no starite sa s naddavane i triabva da ima koi da ti ia plati online, ina4e ne stava.
