 To the southeast of Silistra is the colony of rocky monastic cloisters, including 7 monasteries, many churches, cells, crypts, chapels situated in beautiful scenery. They have a preserved original exterior and late-antique interior. At this point, these are the earliest royal monasteries on the lands of Bulgaria. The monastic life in them was restored during the First Bulgarian Kingdom in the IX-X century. Along with this, a second colony emerges south of Drustar. The most interesting and important are the monasteries around the town of Alfatar, the village of Tsar Assen, the village of Levski, the village of Ruyno and the village of Varbino. In Silistrian colonies rocky monasteries were abandoned in the middle of the nineteenth century during the Pechevan invasions. Their inhabitants pull west and south. It is there, on the Provadiyska, Pirin, Cherni, Beli and Roussenski Lom, that they start the new monastic colonies.
