This year, the Holy Protection of the Mother of God Pilgrimage to the Kremikovtsi Monastery of Saint George that takes place every year on October 1, attracted twice as many people as usual. There is an increasing interest of young and old towards all pilgrimages that take place throughout the year. For seven consecutive years Sofia Municipality has promoted trips to holy places with the blessing of the Holy Metropolis of Sofia and in cooperation with the Faculty of Theology at Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski. The ancient traditions of Christian pilgrimage in Bulgaria find new life in the capital. This was the last pilgrimage for 2017 but in 2018 the pilgrimage routes will once again await you.
