Folklore Museum of Kastoria


In one of the most picturesque streets in the city, one can meet the mansion of Nerandzis-A?vazis, which since 1975, houses the Museum. The Museum hosts the material relics of the region, objects from the everyday life in the house and the work place, objects associated with ceremonies and celebrations.

The visitor can tour in the impressive "krevata", the hall that used to host the formal ceremonies and celebrations, the "kalos ontas" (master bedroom), as well as the summer everyday room that now hosts a representation of a fur workshop.

The wall painting decorating the interior of the building is very impressive. It represents a nostalgic landscape of Constantinople.

Paintings used to cover the largest part of the house, but when the owners whitewashed the walls, as recommended by doctors, in order to prevent tuberculosis, most of the decorative elements lost. In the mansion's shed, we can see the kneading room, the food cellar and the wine cellar.
