More of Bulgaria

While in Bulgaria we visited this old church. The church sits below street level so Brian called it the underground church. The city has built up around it, and it looked like the church had to be excavated somewhat to be able to see it.

This sign was over the door.

I thought it was interesting how many different types of stones and rocks were used in the building.

I paid about a dollar to go in, and this is what I saw. There were pictures of different saints around the room as well as flowers and candles. The room wasn't big enough to hold mass or any other sort of meeting; however, it did look like people came to light candles and pray.

The view across the street from the underground church...a mosque. I guess you could say it was a religious crossroads.
