“House of the Miyaks” consists of a lower floor and two upper floors. There are four guest rooms for overnight stays. The other two floors with an area of about 500 m2 are intended for the multi-room restaurant, decorated with traditional wooden ceilings and rosettes, fireplaces, mosaics, harmoniously playful ornamentation in the revival style, characteristic of the 19th-century miyak’s rooms, antique chandeliers and lamps, wooden linings and screens…
Apart from the beautiful ornamentation, the walls of the “The House of Miyaks” are also decorated with black and white photos of prominent Miyak clergymen, voyvods, revivalists, teachers, social workers, artists, and also scenes from everyday Miyak life, customs, and clothing.
The Miyak culture has been renowned for centuries for its particularly beautiful architecture, decorations, noble traditional dress, and for its deeply meaningful folk traditions.
Together, the architecture, interior and exterior, furnishings, ornaments, photos, food, music and ambience make the “The House of the Miyaks” much more than an ordinary ethno-restaurant; in fact, it is a restaurant-museum, a kind of memorial to the Miyak’s glorious past.
And one cannot avoid to mention the traditional Miyaks food, recognised for it’s gourmand refined taste.
“We believe that a dish is only as good as its ingredients, and that the best ingredients are ones we can get locally.
Since good food begins with good ingredients, our excellent ingredients are chosen according to traditional Miyak tradition and culture.”
Traditional Miyak cuisine is known for its refined flavors.

Our wine cellar is located on the restaurant’s first floor. With its beautiful atmosphere, decoration, and lighting, the wine cellar is a special place where you’ll want to spend time enjoying the different wines we have from several wineries: Tikvesh, Bovin, and Kamnik.
The House of the Miyaks is like a beautiful ornament in the Radika River valley, one which harmoniously blends with its surroundings, so much so that when you look at it you feel like it’s inherently a part of the natural area and that it adds a certain dignity to the whole space.
“We really tried to create something unique that will be the embodiment of their traditional aristocratic Miyak costume and history, and you will even notice elements of authentic mosaics. At the same time, we are extremely careful to keep the original ornamentation, which also served as our inspiration, and precisely because of this, we created costumes that are in the spirit of the entire setting and the rich history it tells, because this building is, in its own unique way, a museum of Miyak culture.”
It is a place where one can easily rest from everyday responsibilities and worries, and calmly sail through past centuries, learn more about the history of the region and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and food.
