    Dryanovo monastery is located at the foot of the cliffs on a small beautiful grounds surrounded by woods. Free entrance to the monastery. Parking near the monastery, 1 Lev per hour. But turning to paid parking is free. Go very close. On the territory there is a hotel and restaurant, but we did not go there. There are souvenir shops and shop with various products-honey, herbs, jams, sweets, etc. Open one shrine, acting, you can go there, see, buy candles, icons, etc. As all monasteries. On the economic front yard there are aviaries with birds and a donkey. Quiet, calm and beautiful.

    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.
