The best known medieval rock monastery on the Bulgarian Black sea coast is located at some 14 km North-East from Varna. The area has been populated since the early Christian period (4th – 6th c). Chronology of the surviving wall paintings in the monastery’s chapel indicates that it flourished by 13th – 14th century. In 1927 Aladzha monastery was officially declared a national heritage site. The specific architectural forms, combined with the beautiful landscape around, and numerous legends, told by local population, create a unique atmosphere of serenity and mystique.
The monastery is near Golden Sands, so if you would like to take a peak at one of Bulgaria’s most famous Black Sea resorts, it is a good idea to combine the two.
