Dryanovo Monastery

Dryanovo Monastery is situated 4 km to the west of Dryanovo, tucked amidst the rock formations of the Balkan foothill and the picturesque river gorge. It was founded sometime in the 12th century. Between the 15th and 18th centuries it was one of the very few monastic establishments, which kept its doors open to the faithful Christian population in the central Balkan Mountain area. After the fire of 1845 only the church remained. The museum exhibition tells the story of the Dryanovo area - from the age of the earliest Paleolithic settlements to the Bulgarian Liberation.
