Church of St Michael the Archangel

Interesting
The church of St-Michael-the-Archangel, built in 1819, replaced a previous building burnt down in 1798 during a raid perpetrated by kardžali, hordes of Turkish brigands attracted by the opulence of the city. The half-buried edifice features a bulging roof covered with stone slabs from which emerges a graceful wooden pinnacle. Inside, note the iconostasis, elaborately carved by local artists (Papa Vitan Conjuv, Simeon and Vitan Kojuv), the splendid Episcopal throne (by pope Kolju Vitanov) and the icons painted by artists from the local school of art.
