ETHNONYM: Turkish-speaking Bulgars


The traditional dwelling contains three rooms with a secondary wall of sod ( zavalinka ) along the main wall and a veranda supported by pillars. The walls of the rooms are adorned with towels and the rugs (decorated with floral designs) popular among the Gagauz, and there are "rug paths" on the floor.
