  • Orthodox Patriarch of Bulgaria Joakim determined that this Japan caves in the 1320's and later until the 17th century, the monks have been living was. They cut from solid rock Vihara, churches, chapels and monastery buildings are approximately 40 what there was a church group. To around 300 or so other religious facilities, but does not present the most. It is a world heritage site because, inside the remains of the 13th - 14th century frescoes. Is a very valuable thing you see sense. Is deeply inside the cave looks out of the landscape can be enjoyed, but for fear of heights who need attention.

  • The rock-hewn churches are protected by UNESCO and represent very old paintings in the rocks. The Last Supper painting is much older compared to Da Vinci one. However prepare for lots of stairs!

  • WiFi is not pr3sent, but the murals are one of a kind!!
  • Unique nature. Unfortunately without a guide there is no way to see a big part of the rock monastery.

  • Beautiful place to stroll and for unloading from gray everyday life. The place is unique, there is a trail which takes you to the high ridge that is visible throughout the surrounding area to area "rusenski LOM" there are wonderful panoramic views. Before the Rock Church is paid but not very expensive, it is worth to consider there are interesting paintings on the ceiling, and the teraskata as you exit also sees all but from another angle. The Church is protected by UNESCO.
