Ruen Monastery - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Location:
The Ruen monastery, St John of Rila, is situated in a beatiful place close to the town of Boboshevo which lies about 8km away off the main road connection Sofia to the border checkpoint of Kulata. A couple of kilometers further from the town is the village of Skrino, the native place of St. Ivan of Rila, while the moneastery is up in the mountain above the village.

About the monastery:
The Ruen monastery is one of the most recently established monasteries in Bulgaria. It was built in 2002 while during our visit, the construction of the monks living part was still being finished. The church has an original architecture, nice wall paintings and a beautiful golden altar. While no visitors are allowed into the monastery on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the monks are quite welcoming on the other days of the week. On Sundays and on holidays, guests can take a moment to enjoy the performance of the young monks choir.
