St Nikolay Monastery—Skravena Monastery

Skravena Bulgaria

Bulgarian Orthodox

The monastery was founded in 1944 by a woman who had a dream with St Nikolay, who directed her to change her life and become a nun. She worked to raise the funds and the cells were finished in 1946. Lyudmila died in 1986 and is buried beneath the oak tree that is more than 500 years old. There is no monastic life at present, but the parish priest keeps the church open and maintains services.
