Rila Monastery Trips

Rising out of the forested Rila Mountains, in the valley of the Rilska River, the Rila Monastery sits at 1147m above sea level. Founded in the 10th century by a hermit, later canoised as St John of Rila, there has been a spiritual site here for more than a millenium.

Today Rila Monastery is regarded as one of Bulgaria's most important cultural, historical and architectural monuments, and it's a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
