This Armenian church is worth stopping by to contrast with all the Bulgarian Orthodox churches that dominate the area. We had to ask to enter but once we did they let us in very willingly.

The museum is well worth a visit without being a top attraction. There is a pleasant and solid exterior. Internally the Church is colourful with a relaxing ambiance.

The elegant St Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church was built in 1842 and features a barrelled wooden ceiling and a wonderful collection of naive icons. It’s normally closed, but the custodian will be happy to open it up for you if he’s around.

I have never been in front of an Armenian Church, so this was a new attraction to me. You can't just visit the church from inside without appointment, maybe at the moment there are just too few tourists. Next time I'll make sure we have...More
