Village of Oreshak
Oreshak is a village in Northern Bulgaria. It is located within the boundaries of municipality Troyan, district of Lovech. The greatest attraction in the village is the National Arts and Crafts Exhibition – the only place in Bulgaria where master-craftsmen from all over the country display their work. There are nine exhibition halls, with total of 4500 sq. m. of display space, as well as a multifunctional conference hall, spread over a 50000 sq. m. site.
The main purpose of the exhibition is to show the distinctive features of the Balkan artistic genius in folk arts, and also to stimulate their development. This aim is fulfilled through changing exhibitions of individual artists’ work, or national and international shows, to which craftsmen from Bulgaria and the outside world contribute.
The exhibition is open 365 days a year, with a bazaar in one of the halls where the works of Bulgarian and foreign craftsmen are on sale.
