The architectural and ethnographic complex Etyra is located in the outskirts of the town Gabrovo.

It was built in 1964 and it is declared as a cultural monument of national importance.
Aladzha Monastery is located in a beautiful and picturesque area, 14 kilometers north from Varna and very close to the seaside resort Golden Sands. It is known that the monastery existed in the 10th century but there is no historical data for when it was first built. The Monastery is one of the very few rock Monasteries with well-preserved rooms with various functionality. The rooms in it are on two levels and are carved in the limestone rock. The first level houses the church, the monastic cells, the living room, the kitchen, a small cemetery church, the crypt and the living premises. The second level houses the Monastery chapel.
Pobiti Kamani (Upright Stones) or also known as Dikilitash, is a natural phenomenon situated 18-20 kilometers away from Varna city. The complex spreads on a 7 sq. km area and it consists of stone columns with different heights reaching up to 10 m., thick or hollow cylinders, various sized and shaped blocks, crossed cones and many other stone pieces. Some columns seem that they have been uprooted as they are just lying on the ground, others form very impressive sculpture groups and many are broken in parts.
Rila Monastery is located in the northwest part of Rila Mountain and it is 117 kilometers away from the capital Sofia. It is believed that it was founded by Saint Ivan Rilski. In fact, he was leading a cloistered life in a cave not far away from the Monastery. The building of the complex was started by his students who used to visit him in the mountain seeking enlightenment in his teaching.
