Aladzha Monastery, Varna Reviews

  • Very interesting place to visit, although could become quite crowded during tourist season. The forest around is beautiful and worth a walk if you want to take a breather from the busy city. Definitely go to the catacombs, they are located about 700m from the monastery and a lovely forest path leads to them.

  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. If yiu are staying in golden sands, i suggest yoi take the trail road using google map. You will paas through a beautiful forest. You need to consider half a day to visit here.

  • Too interesting, I got to know the history of this monastery, full of culture and history I liked it.

  • Amazing archeological site, accessible by car or through the forest trail (recommended!). Nice small museum on site.

  • Well, life of medieval monks must have been tough. Its not so big and you can see everything in 30-45 minutes, but it worth visit. Parking space is quite small and sometimes it may be difficult to park your car here.
