Преображенският манастир

Преображенският манастир се намира на 7км северно от Велико Търново сред богата и красива природа. Основан по времето на Втората българска държава, главно се свързва с личността на втората съпруга на българския цар Иван-Александър - Сара и сина им цар Иван Шишман. Важен духовен център по това време, след падането на българите под турско робство, манастирът е опожаряван и плячкосван, а по-късно разрушен. Възстановен е отново през 19в. Украсен е със стенописи от Захарий Зограф.

В него се е укривал и самият Левски. По време на Руско-турската освободителна война манастирът е служел като болница. Една от зебелжителностите е "Колелото на живота" - изрисувана сцена, която описва цикъла на човешкото битие. От камбанарията, изградена от Кольо Фичето, се разкрива красива панорамна гледка към Преображенската света обител, както и към девическия манастир от другата страна на Дервентския пролом.

Манастирът е отворен за посещение, но настаняване не се предлага.

  4. I would love to be given the opportunity to travel and visit the monastery, it's breathtaking how remote it is just by looking at the third picture from the top.
