The medieval monastery of St. Archangel Michail is Western Bulgaria is set to be restored.

The monastery, which consists of a church and a residential building, is a historical and archaeological monument of culture of a national importance. First built in the thirteenth century, the complex was restored in the sixteenth century, to which the present-day church and the frescos inside of it are dated.

During Ottoman rule, according to historians, the monastery served as a cultural and education centre and the place where the Tran revolutionary committee was founded.

Before the plans to fund the monastery’s restoration, national media reported that the area’s priest was attempting to restore the old kitchen through his own labour and the labour of his friends.
