The house is a cultural heritage site of national significance. It has preserved the unique atmosphere of the times when the famous Bulgarian author Yordan Yovkov lived here in the most romantic months of his life. In the “great room” of this small Dobrudzha home he married his wife Despina Koleva and began writing his first non-military themed work – the short novel Zhetvariat (“The Reaper”). Visitors are further introduced to the novelist’s world through the sculpture of one of Yovkov’s characters – Lyutzkan, who embodies the eternal human strive towards beauty, love and faith in the power of good.
