Old Bansko's biggest cultural asset is its beautiful church, Sveta Troitsa, or Holy Trinity Church.
The church is surrounded by a high wall, and the walkway is simply but beautifully decorated.
The interior is beautiful. It looks like the most elaborately decorated barn or auction house I've ever seen.
I wasn't sure if I was allowed to take pictures, but, remembering what our Free Sofia Tour guide said (most churches say no, but will allow it for a few leva) I worked up the courage to ask the lady selling the candles (after I purchased a few, as well). I used my phrase book and said "How much for this?" and "May I take photos?" She smiled obligingly and said yes- no charge.
I just love the detailing of the painting.
These seats/pews fascinated me- they are so structured, like individual thrones, but also lend themselves to the barn/auction house feel.
