Monasteries on the Black Sea coast
There are several existing monasteries alongside the coast of Black Sea which are particularly suitable for cultural tourism. The newly-built Balgarevo monstery “St. Ekaterina” lies 10km away from the Kaliakra cape. The monastery “St.st. Constantine and Elena” is situated in the summer resort St.St. Constantine and Elena and the rock Aladzha monastery lies to the north of the famous Golden Sands resort.
Gornoezerovski monastery “Virgin Mary” and the Pomorie monastery “St.George the Victorious” are situated in close proximity to Bourgas city.
The Aladzha rock monastery is situated only a few kilometers south of the Riviera Holiday Club sea resort and 2 km of Golden Sands seaside resort. It is also a part of the Golden Sands Nature Park. At present, the remains of 20 residential premises and three churches, which were cut out on two levels in the almost 40-meter high limestone rock and connected via an external staircase dug into the rocks, will fascinate the visitor.monastery details
