Great trip
, Sep 2019
The monastery is stunning so well worth the 90 min drive from Sofia and the Boyana church is a fantastic example of medieval art. Our guide Dennis was great, very knowledgeable and friendly.

Dommage que la visite à été réduite de moitié mais viator nous a remboursé 30% du montant de la visite car nous étions decus.
Très belle Balade mais rapide
, Nov 2019
Visite rapide du monastère (40 minutes sur place) et de l'église ( 10 min sur place dehors sans rentrer dans l'église ) pour pas mal de route. Mais cela reste néanmoins à faire car magnifique
