Gallery of Ancient Bulgarian Art

Highly recommended
The Gallery of Ancient Bulgarian Art presents an exceptional collection of religious art (mostly icons) dating from the 12C to the 19C. The most interesting items include: a 12C St Nicholas, the altar doors of Boboševo Monastery (1488) and an outstanding carved iconostasis originally in the church of the Intercession of Rila Monastery (19C). Not to be missed: the mural paintings of the church of St-George in Nesebur and the evolution of icon painters discovered during the period of the National Awakening.
