Saint Nikola the Miracle Worker

The small Kapinovski Monastery is nestled in the forest and close to river pools and waterfalls. This monastery is a beautiful example of a Bulgarian village monastery. It was originally constructed in 1272 according to the foundation stone in the cornice above the altar.

However, the monastery has been repeatedly destroyed over the years and the present refurbishment was started in 1835 by two self-taught craftsmen from Dryanovo. If you are lucky a monk will accompany you on a tour of the monastery’s many rooms and gardens.
