Galata District

Neighborhood Galata - Kotel is a town with beautiful architectural models from the Renaissance period. The town is declared an architectural and historical reserve. Over 110 Renaissance houses have been preserved. The typical wooden house is one-storey or two-storey, with modest furnishings. The decoration, if any, is usually made of wood, with iconostases and doors with beautiful carving. In the yard of the Kotel's house there are usually vineyards, wells and tall stone walls.

There are houses from the early and late Bulgarian revival, mostly wooden. Typical for the construction of the houses is the presence of a closed storage room called "prust". Later, this repository loses its home function and becomes a welcoming guest room - "welcoming". The beautiful wood carvings of the Kotel's house are present in all rooms, especially in the so-called large room.
