St. St. Cyril and Methodius

This is one of the 100 national tourist sites – more than a century ago, there was a small house in the place of the temple, home of the priest Georgi Stoyanov. To oppose the Greek spiritual oppression, he gave his house to be converted in a temple bearing the name “St. Cyril and Methodius” and he himself preached in the new church and also gave lessons in the narrow hall, used as a school. For his actions he was put on trial, fiercely persecuted and imprisoned. After the long persecution and torture, the spirit and body of this proud Bulgarian fell. After his death, the current temple was erected in the place of the wooden temple. Italian Stone-cutters took part in its construction, prominent craftsmen from Bulgaria and local hard-working people. The temple, a huge three-naval basilica, was built with donations, thanks to which the visitors are lost in admiration in front of exquisite stained glass windows, marble arches, magnificent frescoes and icons.
