The Bulgarian monasteries are built in places that completely correspond to the vision of inherent ascetic yet natural calmness. More than 160 in number, the exceptional from architectural point of view buildings, are usually superbly ensembled with picturesque surroundings. However, the panorama that reveals in front of you could not be compared to what is hidden behind the Wooden Gates.

Talented masters have bequeathed their diligently created masterpieces. The mixture of numerous curves, richly decorated colonnades and graceful arches is a brilliant introduction to the unsurpassed interior design of the monasteries in Bulgaria.

Ornamented iconostasis, magnificent frescos and centuries-old icon collections testify for the significant importance the monasteries had for our nation. Considered cradle of literature, religion and education Bulgarian monasteries have always managed to steadily support and preserve faith and nationality throughout the darkest times in our colourful history.

Rila and Bachkovo monasteries, along with the rock monasteries of Aladja and Ivanovo are simply a must see. During our specially designed tours those interested in the spiritual and cultural heritage of Bulgaria will have the opportunity to genuinely experience the purity of religious values and concepts.
