Seen it so many times on TV and finally here. Rila Monastery was gorgeous. And filled with never ending tourists. When you first entered the compound you're awestruck by the grandeur of the church and surrounding buildings with mountains as backdrop. After that sank in one would notice the tourists all around taking pictures. I could imagine the place without tourists and noise, and how serene and tranquil and beautiful it would be.

For dinner we went to a traditional restaurant with Bulgarian music and dancing (15 leva each). Didnt care for the music nor the dance (and of course the dancers came to get the guests to dance and of course they came to get me) nor the food (horribly bland chicken).
