Description

Start your 10-hour tour with a visit to the UNESCO-listed Boyana Church. Located on the outskirts of Sofia, the church is a fine example of Byzantine architecture. Admire the interior walls that are covered with paintings from numerous historical periods and frescoes dating to 1259. Continue to the Zemen Monastery, founded during the First Bulgarian Empire. In the mid-19th century, living quarters for monks were added, and when the Ottoman Empire fell, a small bell tower was built. Afterwards, head to the Osogovo Monastery, dating from the 11th century and hidden in lush forests surrounded by the Osogovo Mountains. The monastery is considered one of the most beautiful in Macedonia.
