The Rila Monastery
is the largest and most famous Eastern Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria. Founded in the 10th century, the Rila Monastery is regarded as one of Bulgaria’s most important cultural, historical and architectural monuments. We recommend seeing one of the oldest Monasteries on the Balkans – on a good day takes only half an hour by car.
St.John of Rila (The Cave and The Oltar )
St.John of Rila – was the first Bulgarian hermit. He was revered as a saint while he was still alive. The legend surrounding him tells of wild animals that freely came up to him and birds that landed in his hands. His followers founded many churches in his honour, including the famous Rila Monastery.
