The Holy Assumption Cathedral is one of the most impressive religious structures in Plovdiv, which has been drastically restored on several occasions but is still regarded as one of the city’s top attractions. It’s located just around the corner from the amphitheatre in the Old Town and is accessible by some rather steep stairs that lead to its entrance. The cathedral’s interior is also nicely decorated and is free to enter.
Some of its most interesting features are no doubt the unique murals and iconstasis. The iconostasis was created by artists from the famous Bulgarian School of Debar. Most of the icons in The Holy Assumption Cathedral were made by the painter Nikola of Odrin.
