Stambolija House

Basic info

Due to its turbulent history and geographic location, Niš has become a real treasury of architectural styles, presenting a mix of influences. Stambolija House represents yet another monument from the period of Ottoman rule over this area.



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”.
