The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Rila Monastery

We hired a taxi for the day to visit on of Bulgaria's main attraction the Rila Monastery - far cheaper than paying for a coach excursion.

It took nearly 2 hours to arrive at the monastery.

One of the major problems we had was finding a parking spot - it is a very popular place especially on a Sunday.

It looks very austere and gives no clues as to what lies behind the walls.

All around the monastery you can see tall wooded valleys - I guess that from the colour of the vegetation it rains a lot up here ..
