FOR THE GUESTS OF BOROVETS we could offer a visit to the Rila Monastery, founded in the 10th century (with a lunch). It has a remarkable architecture, mural paintings and a rich collection of icons. This is the biggest monastery in Bulgaria, a real spiritual centre of exceptional importance in the history of our country. The proximity of Borovets to Sofia gives an opportunity for a sightseeing tour of the capital. At the beginning of January, in the town of Pernik, which is only 20 km away from Sofia, a big carnival of the mummers from all of Bulgaria takes place - a real attraction for the foreign guests.
