The rock Monasteries and Churches near Ivanovo. A complex of churches, cloisters and monastic cells are carved in the rocks along the Russenski Lom River. In the 13th -14th centuries, it was a scholarly and cultural center and a holy place visited by pilgrims from Russia. Wall paintings and inscriptions that preceded the ones in the Boyana church denote the highly developed culture of medieval Bulgaria. This center is a cultural monument on the UNESCO world natural and cultural heritage list.

The Aladzha Monastery near the Golden Sands resort also dates from the time of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom - 12th -14th centuries and was likely inhabited until the 18th century. Only a few damaged fragments have survived from the wall paintings; the church had a wood carved iconostasis.
