The home of the poet Debelyanov was rebuilt in 1957. It used to be a detached house where lived the families of his father and uncle.
In 1958 was opened Dimcho Debelyanov house-museum. There is an exposition which shows the short road of life and work of the poet. Valuable museum exhibits are his personal possessions from the front, a portrait of his mother, Tzana Ibrishimkoycheva and a portrait of the poet made by his close friend – Georgi Mishev.
The home of Dimcho Debelyanov still keeps the magic flowing from the poetry of the tenderest Bulgarian poet. As one enters the wooden gate he falls in picturesque courtyard with ancient pines and cherry decoration:
“Do you remember? Do you remember the
quiet courtyard, the quiet courtyard with white-flowers sour … ”
The tombstone of Debelyanov is work of Professor Ivan Lazarov – a statue of a forever waiting mother, sitting down on the doorstep of a gate, where a verse of “Silent Victory” is engraved:
“In a gentle reverie she waits,
For her child to come.”
