One of the well-maintained and functioning monasteries, located near the town of Etropole (western Bulgaria), is named after the Holy Trinity. The church holiday is marked on Pentecost, which in 2021 is on June 20.
Founded in the Middle Ages, the Monastery of the Holy Trinity was one of the most important literary and educational centers in Bulgarian lands in the 16th and 17th centuries.
A small picturesque waterfall, formed by a small river flowing near the monastery, can be seen nearby.
