Aladja Monastery

This is one of the few preserved and accessible rock monasteries in Bulgaria, dating from the early Middle Ages and conforming to the hesychastic idea of silence, asceticism and moral perfection.

Monastic cells and a small church have been dug into a sheer rock, 14 km north of the city of Varna and close to the Black Sea resort of Golden Sands. Painted in various colors, XIII-XIV century frescoes are still discernible on its walls.
