When this church’s was first built in the 11th century at the foot of Mt Vitosha, no one could have predicted how important it would become. At that time, only the eastern building stood. Later, when a two story structure was erected next to it in the 13th century. It’s walls were painted with frescoes – these are now some of the most important Eastern European medieval paintings existing, a collection of 80 images of 249 human figures. The final section of the church was built in the 19th century.

The church also houses the national museum, which focuses on regional art, culture and history.
