St Nikolay Mirikliiski the Miracle-Worker—Kladnitsa Monastery

Kladnitsa Bulgaria

Bulgarian Orthodox

The monastery is of ancient orgin, but was destroyed during the time of the Turks. Local people rebuilt the churches and they eventually became part of a larger monastery complex. In 1830 an old man dreamed that he was to rebuild the monastery. It was reconstructed from 1841-1845 and the man became the first father superior. He was killed in 1848, but the monastery continued until communist nationalization in 1944. Though not a functioning monastery today, the local authorities have done restoration work.
