More info

From the preserved records, we learn that the construction was begun by a Turk, AhmetMemetović in 1875, who sold the unfinished house to a well-known merchant from Niš, TodorStanković – Stambolija for 25 golden liras. The nickname of the new owner, who got it because of his commercial relations with Istanbul, gave the name to the house – “Stambolija House“. This building belongs to the profane Balkan architecture style and it was built as a lavish city residence house with more than 10 rooms.

Today, Stambolija house is an ethnorestaurant called “Stamboljiski”.
