Dragalevtsi monastery was founded in the 14th Century and is located on Mount Vitosha, not far from the centre of Sofia in the Dragalevtsi area. It can be easily reached by car, or, if you’re feeling fit, on foot from the centre of Dragalevtsi. The walk will take you around 30-40 minutes and is just over 3kms. If the weather is nice, the walk will be a lovely way to enjoy the beautiful nature and surroundings on your way to the monastery.
