Kremikovtsi Monastery - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Location:
The Kremikovtsi monastery, named St George, is located about 3km away from the quarter of Kremikovtsi, up in the lower parts of the Balkan mountain. While travelling on the way to the monastery, the visitor starts to feel sorry for having chosen it as a destination for the ugly places the road passes through industrial sites and dilapidated corporate hostels for accommodation of blue-collar workers at the nearly steel mill. Yet after getting out of the very quarter of Kremikovtsi, one is taken by the beautiful landscape of the monasterys surrounding, where no trace of the polluted air or the unpleasant view at the foot of the hills is to be found.

About the monastery:
As most of the monasteries presented in this website, this cloister also dates back to the Second Bulgarian State it is believed that the monastery was built at the time of Ivan Alexander. In 1382, when the Ottoman troops conquered the city of Sofia, the monastery was completely ruined. 111 years later, however, it was entirely reconstructed.
