‘Ohrid - Reflection of the Robev Family House’

Recently, Luciano and Lars showed buildings reflected in car windows (in Bergamo and Munich, respectively).
Well, here's another reflection seen in Ohrid.
The back window of a car reflects the famous and historic building the Robev Family house.
(On some sites it’s called the Robevi Family House)

In the WS also a photo of the upper part of the house without reflection.

Information from: http://muzejohrid.mk/en/house-of-robev-family :

In 1825 the brothers Robev destroyed an old house to the foundations and built a new one on the same spot.
Behind the new house they erected a stone warehouse.
The building of the house, with ground floor and two floors was completed in 1827.
The Robev family lived in that house until January 1861, when it was burned by the notorious villain from Ohrid, Husref-Bey.

Two years after the fire, from 1861 to 1863, the current Robev house was rebuilt, the left half for Konstantin Robev and the right one for Anastas Robev.
The House of the Robev Family (actually dual-brotherly house building) according its size and architectural expression, presents a kind of status symbol for the family, whose trade relations led from Istanbul to Vienna, Trieste and Leipzig.

The Robev family lived in the house until 1900.
After 1900 the house has had various destinations, such as a store for agricultural products, a house for the Serbian army that caused a lot of damage in it, the house of the National Museum of Ohrid,…
Between 1973 and 1990 the National Museum and the Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments took care of its reconstruction.

In 1996, the House of the Robev Family was put again under protection of the Law on Protection of Cultural Monuments of the Republic of Macedonia as a valuable cultural and historical built heritage with the distinctive features of the old Ohrid architecture from the 19th century.
