Novoselski MonasteryThe Novoselski Monastery is situated in one of the districts of the town of Apriltsi. It was founded in 1830 as a family monastery.

During the Aprilsko Rebellion it was burned out, while the priest and the nuns were brutally murdered by the ottomans.

That’s the reason for setting up a chapel, which nowadays has been transformed into a museum.

Visitors may buy candles by themselves, there is no one who keeps an eye on them. Tourists visiting the Novoselski Monastery can stay for the night in the nuns’ cells.
