Mantle of Virgin Mary Convent

Manastir Pokrov BogThe new monastery Mantle of Virgin Mary Convent (Manastir Pokrov Bog) is located near the village of Aydemir about 7 km from the town of Silistra.

It was built in 1996 with the help of Bishop Gennady, who donated funds for the construction of the temple after the lands were returned to the monastery.
