This is an ancient place. I could only get access to the church. It is worth a visit. Not many mosaics remain inside which is a terribly shame. I was very impressed with the peacocks outide.

A lovely quiet place to visit and maybe just sit and contemplate. Inside is lovely and just right after the hustle of the city. Well worth a visit.

If you want a break from the city centre, a visit to the city's old town is worthwhile. And when you are there, make sure you go to Vlatadon Monastery and read about the religious history of the site, while enjoying some magnificent views of the city. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere along with the friendly and polite monks will... More

The grounds do offer a few locations for a good... More

Quiteness, and excellent enviroment in the Upper city, providing excellent place to read a book, or rest. No water facilities available, dont forget this is a church and not a museum.
