Your Day at Rila Monastery and Medi Valley – Winery

The start of your day begins with pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Sofia. After about 2 hours drive we reach the Monastery in the Rila Mountain at an altitude of 1147m (3763 feet) above sea level. The introduction of the UNESCO site will begin with brief history of the founder and the construction of the monastery. After that we will visit the church and medieval 14th century defense tower.

After exploring the monastery complex we will have a lunch at very cozy restaurant with local food (grilled trout specialty). Then we will make our way to Medi Valley winery where you will have the possibility to try five different types of wines. A short story about the region, the winery and the products, a questions and answers session, a walk to the ground floor, souvenirs and wine at a special price from the winery’s shop will help you feel the place.
