Lonely Planet review

The Church of Uspenie Bogorodichno on ul Dimcho Debelyanov, built in 1817, is usually closed, but visitors can peer through the window and wander around the gardens. The church grounds contain Kableshkov's grave, and, in the upper section, Debelyanov's grave. A poignant statue features Debelyanov's mother anxiously awaiting his return, and reads 'I die and am yet born again in light'.

Beside the park along ul Hadzhi Nencho Palaveev is the Sveta Kiril & Metodii School, built in 1837.
