Rila Monastery is one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole of Bulgaria. It is situated in the fabulous Rila Mountains in the attractive west of the country. It was built in the fourteenth century, but was destroyed in a fire. It was later rebuilt, and it is now an interesting museum. The gorgeous road to the monastery follows a pretty valley through the forest. After parking the car in the parking lot, you go through two large doors into the monastery. Most people are not prepared for the incredible beauty of what they see inside.
