The house of Georgi Mavridi (today's Lamartine House-Museum) is situated at 19 Knyaz Tseretelev Str. The house was built in 1829 at a corner-spot of three streets, with difference in the levels. While passing through Bulgaria in 1838, the great French poet Alphonse de Lamartine spent only three days in the house of Georgi Mavridi but that was quite enough for the house to be called more often after Lamartine's name rather than its real owner's. Today the house-museum hosts an exposition of photo albums, sculpture of the poet, and the map with Lamartine's route through Bulgaria.
