Besarbovski Rock Monastery


St Dimitar Besarbovski monastery is the only one active rock monastery in Bulgaria for men.

The monastery has been founded during the years of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom, but its name has been mentioned for the first time in a turkish tax register in 1431.

The most renowned dweller of the monastery was St Dimitar Besarbovski, born the nearby village of Besarbovo, whose name has been metioned in "Istoriya Slavianobulgarsaia" by St Paisii of Hilendar.

The monastery is located in Northern Bulgaria, 10 km away from the city of Ruse and is well worth a visit.



Ruse is the fifth largest city in Bulgaria, beautifully situated on the right bank of the Danube River. The city amazes its visitors with its 19-th and 20-th century buildings featuring neo-baroque and neo-rococo architecture, which, together with the beautiful setting of the city along the river bank, create an enticing atmosphere.

Just scroll down the charming streets lined with sidestreet cafes and restaurants, or take a walk in the beautiful park along the Danube River bank to experience the vibrant and the romatic spirit of the city.

Some of the mroe important architectural landmarks here are the Monument of Liberty,the Holy Trinity Church, the building which housed first private bank in Bulgaria- Girdap, the Dohodno Zdanie, the house of Elias Canetti, the Historical Museum, and the city centre, located around it.
