Excursion to Aladzha Monastery, hiking in Golden Sands Nature Park + wine tasting

Available: year round by request (excluding Sundays)


Aladzha Monastery is the most popular medieval rock monastery at the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, which was inhabited by monks – hermits in the 13th – 14th century. The unusual architectural forms and numerous legends about hidden treasures and ghosts of monks wandering among the ruins create an atmosphere of mystery and mysticism, which has been attracting numerous admirers for decades.

600 – 700m west from the Monastery there is a group of caves known as the “Catacombs”. The items found by the archaeologists such as ceramics, coins, graffiti, etc., evidence that the Catacombs were inhabited during the early Christian Age (V-VI centuries).

The cave monastery is situated in the central part of Golden Sands Nature Park – a protected area with rare tree species. The beautiful nature surrounding the Monastery combined with the historical and mythological symbolism make the place a wonderful spot for cultural, eco and cult tourism.
For a century now, Aladzha Monastery has been recognized as one of the most interesting destinations along the Black Sea Coast and it is included in most of the world travel guides.
