The Monastery

One of Bulgaria's most impressive examples of National Revival architecture is Rila Monastery. This monastery flourished until Ottoman raids destroyed it in the late 15th century. In the mid 1800's the monastery was rebuilt by some wealthy Bulgarians. It is now a UNESCO world heritage sight.
