Bulgaria's Churches

Take a tour through the monasteries and churches in Bulgaria to feel the deep roots of Christianity in the country. Bulgarian churches have been built in the Orthodox style and richly decorated with icons and murals by distinguished Bulgarian icon painters. Christianity was one of the main reasons for the preservation of Bulgarian identity during the Ottoman Yoke. Many Bulgarian churches were destroyed during that period but, still, a surprisingly large number of churches survived and can be seen today. You may be sure to find many churches in every city and town in Bulgaria - Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Bourgas, Veliko Tarnovo, Rousse, Stara Zagora.
