Your full day at Rila Monastery

The start of your day begins with pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Sofia. After 2 hours drive we reach the Monastery in the Rila Mountain at an altitude of 1147 m (3763 feet) above sea level. First we will visit the cave of St. Ivan of Rila where you will learn the fascinating story about his holy hermit life and the establishment of the first monastery dedicated to him. This will take us near 30 minutes mountain trail walking and it requires good walking shoes (handicap inaccessible). After the cave we continue to explore the monastery complex by visiting the church, main museum of the monastery , the 14th century medieval defense tower, authentic monk room and the ethnographic museum.

This tour is recommended for people who would like to fully explore Rila Monastery inside-out and to feel the unique atmosphere of this holy place.
