Découvrez deux des joyaux de Bulgarie, classés au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO lors de cette excursion d'une journée au départ de Sofia. Voyagez en minibus, profitez-en pour admirer la campagne de Bulgarie sur la route jusqu'au monastère de Rila dans le massif montagneux du Rila, recouvert de pins. Profitez d'une visite guidée du trésor médiéval avec son église recouverte de fresques et visitez son fascinant musée. Ensuite, après avoir exploré les lieux à votre rythme, continuez jusqu'à l'église de Boyana, à proximité de Sofia, et émerveillez-vous devant ses spectaculaires fresques pré-Renaissance. Les billets d'entrée ne sont pas compris.
This tour was a nice way to get out of the city for a few hours and experience the countryside. The bus was good and the roads were a little curvy but not terrible. Fall colors were gorgeous. The monastery was full of pillars, arches and intricate murals...a real treasure. I had a salad for lunch at a restaurant behind the monastery which can get busy depending on how many tour groups are present. There was still time to walk down to the river and around the old graveyard before heading back.
The tour is really nice. I totally recommend it. We had a very passionate guide (Marina) who shared with us her broad knowledge of the country (its history, legends, traditions...) and gave us recommendations for our stay in Bulgaria. Nevertheless, the time available to visit Rila monastery is not enough, and I'm afraid that you have to choose between having lunch there and try the food they serve in the surroundings of the monastery or starve and visit the monastery (since you will not have the occasion to buy something to eat until you get back to Sofia, around 5 pm)
On 24 May 2018 we took this tour with Daffy. This is the best tour that we have taken with Viator. Boyana Church and Rila Monastery are a definite must if you visit Bulgaria. Daffy was fluent in English, entertaining, and knowledgeable about the church and the monastery. She had an expansive knowledge of the history and culture of Bulgaria and especially Sofia.
El día que cogimos la excursión la Iglesia de Boyana estaba cerrada, pero nadie nos avisó hasta que llegamos al autobús. Además, tampoco se nos ofreció ninguna opción en sustitución, con lo que terminamos la excursión 2h antes de lo programado. Además, en el viaje de vuelta la puerta del autobús se rompió, e hicimos las 2h con la puerta sujeta con una presilla.
Both Rila and Boyana are rather small monasteries, so the transport takes up most of the tour. However, they are both really nice places to visit, the Bulgarian countryside and mountains are really beautiful so I recommend the tour.
The day trip was excellent we started at 9.00 and finished at 17.15.
The guide Martin was very good at explaining everything in particularly in
the Museum at the Rila Monastery he excelled in asking people questions
and then given the answers and explaining everything in detail.
I would recommend this day trip. The bus was easy to find behind Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Our guide, Marina, was very friendly and very knowledgable. Our first stop was at Boyana Church where Marina schowed us the inside of the church and gave us great information about its history and the frescos.
I enjoyed the tour of the monastery the most as we got a lot of important information about the frescos and the history of the monastery. It was great that we had some free time. So, we could have a wander around the museums, have some food, and just enjoy the sights.
