Monastery of the Transfiguration

Recommended
The gorge dug by the River Yantra is the superb setting of the Monastery of the Transfiguration. Restored circa 1850 (by Dimitar Sofijaliata, then Kolju Ficeto), it features a church famous for its murals painted by Zahari Zograf. Note, in particular, The Last Judgement and The Wheel of Life. The dark interior contains a fine iconostasis carved by masters of the Triavna school and an icon representing St Andrew by Stanislas Dospevski.
