    Rila Monastery

    Sofia, komplex "Iavorov" block 67, Sofia, Bulgaria
    4.82 mi from Boyana Church
    17 reviews

I especially liked the murals depicting sinners in hell and the beautifully painted exterior walls and arches. The monastery is about 2 hours outside of Sofia, depending on traffic. It can also be reached by bus.
