All restaurants in the area of the Rila Monastery are closed until further notice, due to the state of emergency in Bulgaria. It’s recommended that you come prepared with sandwiches or other small snacks, bought from a supermarket in Sofia. Rila Monastery’s Dress Code: The monastery is functioning as an Orthodox temple. A strict dress code is imposed and should be respected. Man and women should be wearing clothes covering their shoulders. Women should not wear short shorts or skirts.
The monastery complex is more than 1000 meters above sea level in the mountains. The weather conditions can change within minutes. We advise you to bring warm clothes even during the summer. We advise you to wear comfortable walking shoes as the inner yard of the Rila Monastery is cobbled. Walking around the monastic complex (optional) also requires comfortable walking shoes.
