Sokolski Monastery

Sokolski Monastery is located in the Balkan Mountains, in an area called Sokolova (Falcon) cave, not far from Gabrovo and Tryavna. Surrounded by the high peaks and the green, dank forests, the monastery is overwhelming with its beautiful views. In its yard there is a functioning fountain (cheshma) built by Kolyo Ficheto. The priest will tell you how long the church had stood unpainted, who painted the icons and how the monastery was turned into a hospital during the Russian-Turkish war.

Sokolski Monastery is operative, you will be greeted friendly and with smiles. The road is very beautiful. It is worthwhile to take a trip there, while we in the the Compliment Hotel take care of your dinner.
