History

The walls of Christian monastery shone in a beautiful place, huddled in oak forests, clod with green grass. It cherished a miraculous icon of the Holy Virgin, which healed the sick who believed in the heavenly power.”

The monastery was destroyed by the Turks who conquered the lands along the middle reaches of Topolnitza River at the beginning of XV century. They set the monastery on fire and pulled down the high stone walls. Only the solid foundations remained to witness its existence. The Christian centre in the past gave the name of the area – “The Monastery”.
