map Rozhen Monastery

The Rozhen Monastery (Rozhenski Manastir) is the biggest monastery in the Pirin Planina in southwestern Bulgaria. It is one of the few medieval Bulgarian monasteries well preserved until today. According to sources from Mount Athos, it was built in 890. A couple of new buildings were constructed in the monastery at the time of Despot Slav. It was devastated by fire in the 17th century, but restored during the next century with the financial help of rich Bulgarians from the whole country. The reconstruction began in 1715 and was fully finished in 1732.

The monastery reached its apogee in the 19th century, when it was a regional centre of Orthodox Christianity and owned a lot of land in the area.

Famous Bulgarian revolutionary Yane Sandanski's grave is located near the monastery.
