A bit of disappointment

I was aware that this place cannot be compared with the "Etar" in Gabrovo but I was expecting it to offer some information on the traditional Bulgarian crafts. Also, I`ve been expecting the shop to offer nice and interesting products made by the craftsmen.
In fact, the shop is really poor in variety and there are shops for tourists that offer more products elsewhere. The exhibitions are too small and didn`t manage to attract our attention.
There is an entry fee (2 leva) which is not much but you just don`t feel like the place worths those money. I believe it would be better if the place is free to visit and to rely on you to buy something from the shop, from the coffee shop or to pay for the retro photo that is available.
Yes - there is a retro photo. A single picture costs 2 leva which is pretty cheap but personally I don`t like those retro photos as I find them kitschy.
They offer traditional cofee there. The balkony is pretty nice and I guess you can have some good time if you like coffee.
Well, don`t get me wrong - the place is not awful. It is just not what you`d expect. If you have enough time to spend in Sopot - don`t hesitate visiting the place. But if you have to choose what to skip - this one can be skipped without feeling bad about it.
I visited Sopot and Karlovo on the same day and we didn`t manage to visit "Buhoviq han" in Karlovo. Now I`d definitely choose to go there instead of "Sopotski esnaf".
