Besarabovski monasteryThis is the only acting rock monastery in Bulgaria. It is about 10 km south of Rouse, near the village of Bassarbovo, in the rocks by the Rousenski Lom River. The earliest historical information about it is in a register from the 15th century, where it is described as a Monastery Bassaraba with 14 households in the village. Over the years the monastery had repeatedly been destroyed and rebuilt. Forty-eight steps lead to a rock platform with a niche, in which, according to legend, the Reverend Dimitriy spent the nights. To the right is the rock church (4.5 m by 8.6 m) with a wood carved iconostasis (1941) and a big icon of the life of the saint (1803). Opposite to the church there are two monk cells, where monk Hadzhi Hristant (the abbot and reviver of the monastery) lived, while another stone staircase leads to a natural cave, where he had been buried. In the courtyard of the monastery there is a well with curative water, dug by the Reverend Dimitriy.
