Rila Monastery, Bulgaria

26 Nov

Next to Blagoevgrad there is a religious and calm place that hides a long history. It is Rila Monastery.

One you are arriving there is impossible to figure out what are you going to see. Outside it doesn’t seem so spectacular but when you enter you get a bug surprise.

The best moment to visit it, for me, is in Autumn. You can feel the religious atmosphere better than in summer, when lots of tourists are there. And nature make this place magical.

Another amazing thing of this place are the paintings on the walls and ceilings that are really wonderful, it’s a perfect place to feel the peace and calm of the mountains. Spirituality breathes in all its corners even if you are not religious you can notice all this things.


So summarizing, Rila is one of the touristic places you must visit when you are in Bulgaria. And of course, if you are tired you can pass a night there enjoying the spirituality atmosphere…maybe is not so comfortable but it will be an interesting experience for sure!
