Dryanovo Monastery
The historical St. Archangel Mihael Monastery of Dryanovo is situated in the beautiful Dryanovo River valley, 4 km of the town of Dryanovo. It was built in the 12th century during the Second Bulgarian State. During the Turkish yoke the monastery was destroyed twice but later was restored as a strong fortress of the Bulgarian spirit. In 1845, the monastery was built on its current location.

Most of the glorious events in the Bulgarian history took place in this monastery. The most regular visitor of the monastery reverend Mathew Preobrajenski - Mitkaloto brought with him Vassil Levski in 1871. During the April rebellion, a band, numbering 200 Bulgarian volunteers and leaded by the Pope Hariton Voivode and Peter Parmakov, arrived on the monastery. The band was ringed and after a fierce fight the Turks burnt down the monastery.

After the Liberation a monument - Mausoleum, designed by the Italian Djovani Musiti, was erected at the very spot of the burnt monastery. Its frame is eight wall pyramid, ending in a sphere and a cross. The ossuary was made of local white stone. There is a white marble statue of a rebel, worked by Luca Argini in Rome. There are 60 skulls of rebels in the crypt and their names have been written on marble tables.

The monastery library keeps a great number of manuscripts and church books.

Dryanovo monastery is among the most visited tourist spots in Bulgaria.
