Boyana Church

Boyana Church or the Church of St. Panteleimon. A small, but interesting temple, at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain near Sofia. The Boyana Church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. The Boyana Church consists of three buildings of different periods. The first building date from the XI century, the next – XIII, and the last wing was completed in the XIX century.

The first building is the oldest – is a small domed church built according to local traditions. The second building is a two-storey one, it fits tightly to the western facade of the old church and is connected with it in style. On the ground floor is the tomb of Kaloyan and his wife Desislava, and on the second floor is the family chapel. Outside the church is decorated with ceramics. Third, the most western part of the church is a later addition to the nineteenth century.

The Boyana Church gained world fame thanks to the unique murals from 1259 – the work of an unknown icon painter of the second Bulgarian kingdom (12-14 centuries). It is one of the most valuable collections of medieval painting.
