Tsarkva Sveti Nikola

Sapareva Banya Bulgaria

Bulgarian Orthodox

The small church was built sometime between the 11th and the 14th century. It probably belonged to a local noble or was attached to a larger church, as a chapel or cemetery church. During Ottoman rule (after 1500) renovation was not allowed and the church fell into ruin. In 1931 there was no roof. It was reconstructed in 1937 and named a monument of culture of national importance in 1968. There are remnants of Roman ruins in the churchyard.
