A short Sunday trip to the cute monastery of Kremikovtsi | Бърза разходка около София - Кремиковски манастир



The Kremikovtsi Monastery is situated only 25km northeast from Sofia and dates back to the Second Bulgarian Empire in the 14th century, but it was destroyed by the Ottomans. Luckily, it was re-established in the 15th century.

Честно да си призная почти винаги игнорирам местата около София. Но ако нямам време да пътувам далеч, всъщност именно те се оказват идеални за неделна разходка. Сведения за Кремиковския манастир има още от Второто българско царство, но по-късно той е разрушен от османците. През 15в. манастирът е възобновен. 


There are 2 churches - an old and a new one. You can easily recognise which is the old one.

Днес е запазена манастирската църква "Св. Георги". 


The monastery's frescoes have a great value and are regarded as one of the most precious Bulgarian arts from the medieval period.

Стенописите имат внушителна художествена стойност, тъй като са едни от най-ценните в българското средновековно художествено наследство. 


Right in front of the church, there is a courtyard with wooden tables and benches, which makes the Kremikovtsi Monastery a great choice for a picnic on sunny weekends. There is also a wonderful panoramic view of Sofia and Rila mountain, and leaving the place you can buy a jar of honey or jam.

Пред църквата има дворче с дървени маси и пейки за пикник и панорамна гледка към София и Рила. Също така, тръгвайки си оттам, можете да си купите буркан с мед или сладко от манастирското магазинче.

  6. You're luck to live in a place where your have such stunning historical places, I don't have anything similar where I live. But that's one of the main reason that I love Europe in general, they are so rich in history and old architecture.

  7. It looks like a perfect escape from the city without going far away :) The history behind the monastery speaks for itself and your photos are as beautiful as usual. I really enjoy this virtual tour through Bulgaria :)
    There is a similar place near Barcelona. It's called Montserrat and the location of the monastery is breathtaking. It's a great quick escape :)
