What shall I see

Our next stop will be the historical Bachkovo Monastery - founded in 1083. It is the second largest monastery in Bulgaria. There we will visit the main church of Virgin Mary built in 1604 where a valuable icon of Saint Mary from 11-12th century AD is being kept. According to the legend and the big number of healed people this remarkable icon is believed to be miracle working. You will also see the Archangels Church dating to the 12th century and the monastery refectory which has preserved colorful murals from 1643. Together with the Doomsday fresco, you can admire images of some prophets, saint-monks, ancient philosophers and writers such as Socrates, Aristotle, Plato and many more.
