Take this trip to escape from the big city and breathe-in the fresh sceneries of the beautiful Rila Mountain.
This full day trip will reveal you the secrets of one of the most important Bulgarian sites – Rila Monastery, under UNESCO patronage as a monument of an extraordinary value and significance of world culture.
Founded during the 10-th century by St. Ivan Rilski, among the bosoms of Rila, the monastery is the most outstanding monument of Bulgarian culture and architecture of the Revival period. Imposing, the monastery creates a great impression on the visitors with its renaissance architecture and frescoes.
Known also as the Holy Rila Retreat, for centuries the monastery played a vivid part in the Bulgarian history, in the struggle of our nation for spiritual and political freedom.
Enjoy your time to refill with energy at this magical place and do not miss the chance to taste the local specialty – trout on a barbeque.
