Kluvia

           

           Two kilometres away from the monastery, one can find the place where the Miraculous Icon had been found. It is called Kluviata. The place is surrounded by high cliffs and is well hidden among them. It is situated at the foot of the mountain – ‘The Red Wall’(a sheer cliff raising 1500 meters above sea level). There is a narrow path leading to it that follows a small river. Each spring the river makes a beautiful waterfall.


            The niche, in which the icon had been hidden, is situated ten meters above the ground. However, small steps were carved in the stone and the spot is easily accessible for everybody. Not far from it, is the church ‘St. Archangels’. Every year a mess is served there on the second day of Easter. Inside, there is a well preserved fresco from the XVII century. Outside, it features a small spring, whose water is believed to miraculous – pilgrims visit it often to use some for drinking or washing.




 

Support us

The monastic fraternity constantly makes every endeavor to maintain the Cloister of the Holy Virgin at its best condition; this is the condition the cloister really deserves to be in, in order to welcome the thousands of pilgrims that visit it every year, truly beautifully and impress them.
The maintenance of the fund and the restoration of the many unique frescoes, inherited by the holy forefathers, could be quite costly and the monastery does not always manage to cover all the expenses. For this very reason, we turn for help to every Christian and to everyone who values the Bachkovo monastery, to contribute within their means and thus join our efforts.

Every charitable deed will be welcomed with honest gratitude and intercessory prayer in the name of Jesus Christ and the Holy Mother for wellbeing and success of the contributor and their family.
