On the hills surrounding Sofia one can find this marvel. The church was build during three periods and the different wall paintings from eacht one can be seen and admired. Very nice colours and interesting histories about the different scenes. Must-visit.

It is a very interesting church on the outskirts of Sofia, but it doesn't take long to visit. In fact the size means visits are limited to 8 people for 10 minutes so you have to weigh up if you are getting there yourself (we...More
