Kremikovtsi Monastery


Spiritual Places

Kremikovtsi Monastery is a superb destination for a one day trip out of Sofia. It is located only 20 km northeast from the capital on the southern slopes of the Stara Planina mountain, about half an hour drive if the traffic is light.

The monastery does not offer accommodation but there are tables and benches in the courtyard where visitors can sit and eat the food they brought along with them. The view of the city and mountains from the monastery courtyard is beautiful and the total ambiance is that of peace and quiet. Many hiking and biking trails pass nearby and there are many more beautiful spots in the fields and mountains around.

The monastery itself is a historical and a cultural attraction and dates back to the Middle Ages. It consists of 2 buildings, 2 churches, a gorgeous especially in the summer courtyard, smaller household and farm constructions. There are interesting wood carvings, murals and few unique icons which can be seen when the churches are open. Look for the icons of St Ekaterina, the Holy Mother of God and of course the icon of the patron St George (Sveti Georgi Pobedonosets) on a horseback killing the dragon.

Kremikovtsi Monastery is an acting convent and although it is attended by a very limited staff, visitors are expected to observe the behavior and dress codes appropriate for holy places.
