Back there again

August 26, 2009

Aug_RilaA place I never get tired of visiting – the Rila Monastery – passing through the gate and the world becomes different that I can best render with the word – serene.

The remains of  Saint John of Rila, the patron saint of Bulgaria and the founder of the Rila Monastery are kept here. It just dawns on me that his effigy is on the 1 lev coins in circulation in Bulgaria.
