A UNESCO World Heritage Site since the 1970s, and one of Bulgaria’s most visited landmarks, Rila Monastery is a veritable jewel. The monastery is famous for its colorful frescoes, ornate interior, and long history; its founding dates all the way back to the 10th century.

Once you arrive, go on a 3-hour tour of its holy cloister, after which you’ll relax with a tasty lunch. When your hour-long lunch break is over, embark on the scenic, 2-hour journey back to your hotel.

It was an interesting tour, and my guide is informed very well about the place and Bulgarian culture.
She told me a lot about Bulgaria in the way and I thank her for that.

This was an interesting tour and great value. It was good to escape from the city for the day and travel through the country side. The guide was professional but did not accompany us around the monastery. The tour also included a meal which was also very good.
