Rozhen Monastery Tours

As the largest and one of the oldest monasteries in Bulgaria, the Rozhen Monastery sits amongst the Pirin Mountains as a living symbol of the area’s history and spirituality. Archaeological evidence suggests the structure dates as far back as the 13th century, when it was also mentioned in Greek texts.  Destroyed by armies and fires throughout the years, the monastery was most recently restored by wealthy citizens in the 18th century.

With its unique six angle shape, the monastery and residential buildings surround a beautiful courtyard and small church. Frescoes and stained glass windows dating back to the 16th century line the walls of the church’s interior. The “Nativity of the Mother of God” also has an impressive display of carved, wooden altars and iconostases. It continues to be stand as a center of Orthodox Christianity and one of the greatest preserved medieval structures of Bulgaria.

Practical Info

Rozhen Monastery is located in the Pirin Mountains of southwestern Bulgaria, about 7 kilometers from Melnik. Cameras are prohibited inside. It is open year-round.
