Alexandria Monastery - St. Prophet Elijah, Picture

Interesting is the story of Alexandria Monastery - St. Prophet Elijah. Monastery was built during the reign of Tsar Ivan Alexander, the 1331-1371 According to legend, the monastery was built at the insistence of the second wife of the king. Building was built there because this place was healing water and a slab of stone on which were printed the footsteps of the Holy Prophet Elijah. After the fall of the Bulgarian state under Ottoman rule, the monastery was destroyed. After years here in place of Alexandria monastery was erected wooden Teke - Muslim shrine, which today does not exist.

In 2004 he began the restoration of Christian monastery and the temple was built by the means of many donors. The place is known for its healing spring water which according to people cure various diseases. Therefore here often gather people of different religions and celebrate together. On the feast of St. Elijah Muslims offer their sacrifices and Christians spend the night here for health.

Monastery is located immediately after the village of Alexandria, 10 kilometers from the village of Krushari and 40 km from the town. Dobrich.
