Monastery cellar

     The current monastery cellar was built in 1622. It is situated in the East part of the middle monastery corpus. Today, it is still in operation and has two sections: one for food and one for wine/rakija, the monastery’s famous Djindjifirka. The rakija is made from grapes, after the distillation, a few pieces from the old monastery tree – Djindjifir(dyospirus lotos), are added. This adds distinctive flavor and colour. The abbot recommends it: ‘Responsible consumption is a balm for the heart’. The three itself is unusual for Bulgaria – it was brought to the monastery by the monks from the Caucasus.







 

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.
