Rila Monastery Private Tour


Located in the very heart of the biggest mountain in Bulgaria - Rila, the Monastery "St. Ivan Rilski" is considered one of the most significant sightseeings in our country. It is therefore included in the UNSECO list of the world cultural and historical heritage. We are happy to organize day round-trip-tours from Sofia to this special place and to show you the magnificent beauty of our nature, history and culture, all combined.


Book this day trip tour with us easily and remain satisfied with our services! We offer a comfortable vehicle for your transportation and a fluent English-speaking driver. We recommend that you start the tour early in the morning, any day of the week, any season. We would be happy to collect you from any point of your wish in Sofia and to take you to the Rila Monastery within two hours time. Once there, you can explore the beautiful church of Saint Ivan Rilski surrounded by the monastery's walls, the monastery museum and the residential part. Since the Bulgarian culture is mainly influented by the Orthodox church, you would be able to find out how beautiful the biggest Orthodox Monastery in Bulgaria is as well as how delicious cuisine Bulgarians have. We would recommend you to allow yourself one hour time to enjoy traditional lunch at a restaurant besides the monastery. We will then be happy to take you to a beautiful trail through the forest by which you may reach the cave with the tomb of Saint Ivan Rilski himself as well as the magical fountain of the wishes. The place has its charm in any weather so you would not be disappointed even if you visit it during a heavy rain. If you do not have a full day, be advised that we could recommend you a half day version of the tour of about five hours - do not hesitate to contact us for any further details, anytime!
