  • Great place to visit and also hike around.
  • A very nice old monastery in good shape.
  • It's worth visiting although not the best monastery around. There is a lot of history, beautiful views and some great stories surrounding it.
  • Great place to visit and feel the vibes is a must to see if you are in Sandanski/Melnik area. Historical and saint place for thousands of years where monks have been serving God and writhing and writhing many many holy books of Christianity. With miracle make icon of Holy Mary. Very nice mountain views and tranquility. Tourist trail between the gorgeous sand pyramids from Melnik to Rojenski Monastery, local people sell local herbs,jams and homemade goods is just so adorable.
  • Nice and quiet place at the end of September. Beautiful black cat said hello.
