Plan of the Lyrical House

Aco Šopov‘s Lyrical House is a virtual and dynamic museum which provides a comprehensive overview of the life and work of this poet, who is one of the founders of contemporary Macedonian poetry and whose voice is one of the most powerful in Southeast Europe in the 20th century.

A glimpse of the author’s life is in the Display Case, whereas illustrated details of his life are in the room called A Life in Pictures in the Gallery which exhibits, moreover, a series of portraits of the poet, as well as works of art inspired by his poetry.

You will find a selection of his books in the Library, and a choice of his manuscripts, poems, interviews and writings in the Reading Room, which also contains articles and quotations about him.

The Events, classified according to year, will give you an idea of the cultural activities that are regularly organized in his honour.

You can also visit the Video Library, buy a book at the Bookstore, find useful web links and get to know the poet’s Friends.

A special room is devoted to the Macedonian poets who received the Aco Šopov Prize for the best collection of the year, an award attributed each year since 1999 by the Macedonian Writers Society.

The Lyrical House also includes a community space devoted to its Foundation and its Association.
