I've been there several times last few years, but this year Monastery looks great, because of the good restoration work and opened new places for visitors.

A small and quaint monestary with a beautifully painted church and a little museum room dedicated to Levski. Worth visiting if you're in the area,but nothing to go out of your way for.

Great historical monument, a place that means a lot especially when thinking about Bulgarian liberty and one of the most important bulgarian man of all times - Vasil Levski. Go to enjoy the yard and architecture. It is great.

It is a nice place to visit but definitely not a monastery anymore. There is too much commercialization in the place.
