Kolyo Ficheto and the town of Dryanovo

We stayed overnight at the Park Hotel in Dryanovo. The next day we visited the town, including the museum devoted to Kolya Ficheto, one of the major figures in Bulgarian renaissance architecture. His statue is pictured below:

Ficheto designed many churches, bridges, wooden doors and ornaments and other important buildings from the 1860s. Across the street was a house museum built with no nails which we toured.
