Bulgarian Rock Monasteries
8 Apr 2013 | From Nadezhda of Bulgaria
There are numerous rock monasteries in Northern Bulgaria, most of which are not functional at the present time, Nadezhda shared.
Many rock monasteries are situated in the picturesque valley of the Roussenski Lom river. Basarbovo Monastery is the only active rock monastery in Bulgaria and the Ivanovo rock monastery, which is about 25 kilometers away from the Basarbovo monastery, is included in the list of World Cultural heritage of UNESCO due to the extraordinary frescoes in the rock church “St. Virgin”.
