Museum house His Royal Majesty Karol I - the town of Pordim

Varban Illiev’s house was built after the war next to the house which was the Romanian Head-quarters and where Prince Karol I stayed at the time of the battles for Pleven. In 1904-1907 it was turned into a museum together with the original building in which the furniture of that time was completely kept. Most of the exhibits were given as presents by the Romanian war ministry in 1904, 1954 and 1967.T

The museum display is dedicated to the Romanian participation in the Russo-Turkish war 1877-1878 and the activity of the Headquarters of the Romanian army while the Romanian Prince Karol I was in Pordin in 1877. There is a rich collection of Romanian uniforms and weapons.
