Rila Monastery Bulgaria – by Atlanta Photographer Maryann Davidson Photography

Ironically, this stunning monastery evolved as a result of a simple shepherd who became a monk and retired to a cave near the present day site, intending to lead an isolated life. Now attracting almost a million visitors annually, the Monastery of Saint Ivan of Rila, better known as the Rila Monastery, is one of the most famous Bulgarian symbols. Not only is it the biggest monastery in Bulgaria, it is also the most influential spiritual centre in the country and the second biggest monastery on the Balkan Peninsula. The interior is awe-inspiring and quite impressive – richly decorated walls, a great diversity of compositions depicting religious scenes, and unique woodcarvings painted gold. Though photography of the monastery’s interior is strictly prohibited, visitors are allowed to take pictures outside and on the grounds. (A google image search will reveal the interior.)
