Museum "Economy of the Monastery"

Here you will get acquainted with part of the economic activity of the monastery in the period XVIII - XIX century. The old mill, the oven for baking bread and the appliances for logging and beekeeping are preserved. The most interesting part of the museum is the magernitsa, where food was prepared for the monks and the numerous pilgrims who visited the monastery during the biggest Christian holidays. In terms of construction and layout it is an exceptional creation. It is the work of master Alexi from the village of Rila.
