Monasteries: Klisura Monastery St. Petka

Klisura Monastery St. Petka - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Location:
Besides the more popular Klisura monastery in the Balkan mountain, there is another monastery carrying the same name, called after the nearby village of Klisura. The latter lies in the outskirts of Sofia, just a few km away from the town of Bankya.

About the monastery:
The Klisura monastery St Petka was originally built on an old road that connected Sofia to the village of Breznik. The first church is believed to have been erected more than 300 years ago, though in 1954, it collapsed under the burden of its years. A new church was built in its place by Mother Superior Maria Magdalene (1896-1978) and still functions there.
