  • Very nice Church, recently restored. The road is rather unimpressive, but it this church is really worth to visit. Great icons, wall paintings. The Church was totally ruined by the Communists and used as a warehouse. Until 1997 it has begun the murals to restore after old photos. The exhibition is accompanied by a famous choir. There is a monastery shop where you can buy self-produced food and a small restaurant. However non-alcoholic drinks.
