The British Council office in Sofia
The spacious house built in 1921 in the Art Deco style, was the home of one of the most affluent entrepreneurs and tobacco merchants from the early 20th century, Doncho Palaveev. The life in the house inspired the Bulgarian writer Dimitar Dimov to write his masterpiece novel 'Tobacco'.
