The Monastery of Saint Ivan of Rila is the largest Eastern Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria. It is situated in the northwestern Rila Mountains, 117 km (73 mi) south of the capital Sofia in the deep valley of the Rilska River.

Founded in the 10th century is regarded as one of Bulgaria's most important cultural, historical and architectural monuments.
Personally, I thought it wouldn't be worth to go but seriously guys, if you like the hidden part of every country, you cannot miss this place.
