  • One of the many beautiful Bulgarian monasteries. Located next to the main road between Gabrovo and Veliko Tarnovo. This band of Pop Hariton was fought heavy battles with the Ottoman army during the April uprising.
  • Really amazing place with great history. The old spirit can be felt in each corner
  • A bit too commercialised, but very beautiful.
