Basarbovski Monastery - Pictures Of Bulgaria
The monastery St Dimitrii of Basarbovo is a rock monastery situated in the picturesque valley of the Rusenski Lom River amidst a number of rock cloisters. It lies about 10km away from the town of Rousse and carries the name of a near-by village.

The earliest historical records for the monastery date back to the 15th century and are found in some Ottoman Empires tax registers. A description of a land property (so-called timar), owned by the Wallachian leader Ivanko Basarab, father-in-law of Tsar Ivan Alexander, is found in one such register. This timar is the first written document that mentions the name of the village of Basarbovo as the Basarab monastery. In 1911, a Committee on Historical Remains was established at the National Archeological Museum in Sofia with its main task being the elaboration of an archeological map of Bulgaria. The famous Czech traveler, Karel Skorpil, who had carried out scientific trips across Bulgaria in 1887 and 1892, was invited onboard for the job. In 1912, Skorpil set off on a trip down the Lom rivers, visiting and describing the Basarbovo monastery.
