Description
At the foot of Vitosha mountain, in the Boyana district of Sofia is the "St. Nicholas and St. Panteleimon" Church - the Boyana Church. The temple owes its worldwide reputation to the 1259 frescoes that reflect the outstanding achievements of the Bulgarian medieval culture. It is these frescoes that are the forerunners of the European Renaissance. Most of the images have been distinguished by individuality, convincing psychological characteristics and vitality. Among them are the rare portraits of a Bulgarian royal couple from that epoch -Tsar Constantine-Asen Tih and Tsaritsa Irina and of the donors sevastokrator Kaloyan and his wife Desislava.
