Home Monasteries



Monasteries

Nestled in the most beautiful parts of the mountains, between virgin nature, each monastery has its own unique and impressive story. The beauty of the 160 monastery ensembles, with their numerous colonnades, arches, vaults, nooks and graceful curves, superbly linked with the surrounding scenery, are the work of talented master builders. Their architectural silhouettes stand magnificently against the background of lovely nature. The imaginative wood-cuts, exquisite murals, skilful ornamentation and warm coloring testify to the unsurpassed imagination of the Bulgarian national genius. The iconostases are absolute masterpieces - a perfect mixture of woodcarving and engraving, and the icon collections, which contain pieces old more than 1000 years, are with exceptional beauty. Monasteries museums are rich of exhibits, but the monasteries themselves are not museums - they still continue their functioning.
