Favorites from Bulgaria

Like most of my last bulgarian cards, these have been sent by Lilia "childish".

 The Dryanovo Monastery is a functioning Bulgarian Orthodox monastery situated in the Andaka River Valley, in Bulgarka Nature Park in the central part of Bulgaria five kilometers away from the town of Dryanovo. It was founded in the 12th century, during the Second Bulgarian Empire, and is dedicated to Archangel Michael. Twice burnt down and pillaged during the Ottoman rule of Bulgaria, the monastery was restored at it present place in 1845. It was the site of several battles during the April Uprising of 1876. - in: wikipedia

The Boyana waterfall is located some 4.5 km from the center of Boyana quarter.
The Boyana Waterfall is considered the most beautiful and largest waterfall in Vitosha Mountain. The only sound that may interrupt the unique silence and true serenity of the breathtaking scenery is the one of the splashing waters, falling gracefully from 15 m. The Boyana Waterfall is on the Boyana River in the magnificent Vitosha Mountain.
The enchanting waterfall is especially beautiful in spring when the snows are melting.
It is believed that in clear weather during the spring the waterfall can be seen from the city center of Sofia. - in:
