Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Church

Reviewed By Danubegal - Tutrakhan, Silistra, BulgariaTutrakhan, Silistra, Bulgaria

Gorgeous, atmospheric old place

I go to this church often to light candles and pray quietly as many Bulgarians do. It is small, dark and smoky with incense, and has lovely icons. However I am not sure if they ever actually have services.
