One of the oldest art
collections in the country

The Art Gallery in Kazanlak, founded in 1901, is among the oldest art collections in Bulgaria and has valuable works by prominent Bulgarian artists. It presents permanent and temporary exhibitions that reflect the historical and contemporary development of the visual arts in Bulgaria.

Four locations in the heart of the city

The period between 1930 and 1958 was fruitful for the development of the art collection, during which the artist and writer Dimitar Chorbadzhiyski – Chudomir was the director of the Museum of Antiquities and Arts. With his sense and personal contacts with the artists of his time, he enriched the collection with nationally significant works.

Since 1973, the gallery has been an independent cultural institute, and in 1981 it established its permanent exhibition in part of the newly built building at 9 Sts. Cyril and Methodius St., as well as in the house museums of the artists Nenko Balkanski and Dechko Uzunov.
