Chiprovtsi Monastery

Monastery in Chiprovtsi

Founded in the 10th century, this working monastery, dedicated to Sveti Ivan Rilski (St John of Rila), was destroyed and rebuilt several times over the years – what you see today dates largely from the early 19th century. It's roughly 7km northeast of Chiprovtsi village; take any bus between Montana and Chiprovtsi.
