Preobrazhenie MonasteryThe Preobrazhenie Monastery dates back to the Second Bulgarian Kingdom.

It is located midst a gorgeous lime-tree forest, under the vertical jagged cliffs in the ravine of the Yantra River, some 6 km north from Veliko Tarnovo.

The Preobrazhenie Monastery was restored to its present-day shape in 1825.

The church was completed by the peerless master Kolyo Ficheto. The Preobrazhenie church is a striking masterpiece of both architecture and iconography.
