Summary for the landmark
In November 2013 I visited Rila Monastery and my rating is 5/5.
The country road to the monastery is worth the trip in itself, especially during the autumn season. When we arrived at our destination we were blown away by the sheer scale of the Monastary. Inside the church we were stunned by the decoration on every single centimeter of the walls and ceilings - it us a very special place. We will certainly return on our next trip to Bulgaria.
