The Museum HOUSE OF HUMOUR AND SATIRE is one of the 100 national tourist sites of Bulgaria
On page 16 of the latest edition of the booklet 100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria keen tourists can "stamp" their visit to 4 tourist sites emblematic of the region of Gabrovo. Among them is the one and only in Bulgaria world humour art museum - the House of Humour and Satire - which ranks among the most touristy sites in the country.

OUR WHEREABOUTS?

Gabrovo - the geographical centre of Bulgaria that lies 220 km east of the capital Sofia, 150 km northeast of Plovdiv (the second biggest city in Bulgaria), 274 km west of Varna (the biggest Bulgarian port on the Black Sea) and 153 km south of Ruse (the biggest Bulgarian port on the Danube).



Unless you are on a package tour or travel by your own vehicle, you can reach Gabrovo by bus or train. Gabrovo Bus Station is only a few-minute walk to the Museum HOUSE OF HUMOUR AND SATIRE.

The House of Humour and Satire is the right starting point for every tourist curious to explore for himself the wealth of the historical, cultural and natural heritage on the territory of the smallest district in Bulgaria. To be found here are: ETAR Architectural-Ethnographic Complex; BOZHENTSI Reserve of Architecture and History; National Museum of Education; two national nature parks; monasteries, churches, eco-paths and smaller towns that have preserved the atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival. Should night overtake the tourist on the road, TRIVAGO.BG is where he can find Balkan Mountains hospitality and cosiness.


Should you decide to take a piece of Gabrovo humour away with you, don't pass by the SOUVENIR SHOP. This is the one and only place where you can find unique Gabrovo souvenirs (1/2 coffee-cups, utensils for unwelcomed guests, Gabrovo beer mugs, clocks that work counter-clockwise, white and black statues of cats, cups for reading one's future, Forget-it ash-trays, cups for moustached men, tapped eggs, etc.), as well as a variety of HHS publications. Only here can tourists buy the latest publication of GABROVO HUMOUR - ANECDOTES AND JOKES ABOUT GABROVIANS in 5 languages and an apron with Gabrovo recipes to survive an economic crisis.
