You will be visiting the Zemen Monastery. You will see the 11th century church "John the Evangelist" part of the complex is a typical representative of the Bulgarian mediaeval church architecture. The murals presenting moments from the Holy Bible are its greatest treasure.

Kyustendil was founded in the 5th century B.C. by the Thracian tribes who settled here, attracted by the hot mineral springs. In the 1st century A.D., the Romans turned it into a town named Pautalia which literally means "city of the spring." They built ancient baths as well as strong fortress wall which remains can be still seen nowadays.
