A Holy Liturgy Tsarevo – Church on a sea rocks

Tsarevo sea resort sky view

Its 5th day since I’m in Tsarevo . Its my first time in Tzarevo but hope not my last time. The place is absolutely charming !
There are more than 15 beaches in the region, plenty of beautiful rocks, a little sea port and 2 beautiful Churches – one located on the tiny little city street as well as the second ancient Church located on a sea rocks nearby the sea coast.

The whole main city (old) part is concentrated near 3 main streets one of which can be considered central. Once one walk the central street you pass by a little park (sea garden – as we call them in bulgaria) located on right. Continuing straight in the main street in the eyesight of the viewer is a strange beautiful looking natural water carved rocks.

Once you walk towards the rocky shore mixed with sand at one’s sight view is a large cross:

Tsarevo is a place for people who like rocky places as there are too many of rocks all around the town.
Most of the beaches here are a mixture of rocks and sand, so probably people who prefer luxurious beaches won’t like it, but for “wild souls” like me it is perfect 🙂

Here is a picture of the central Tsarevo beach.

Today in morning for the usual Sunday holy liturgy we went to the rock located Church Dormition of Virgin Mary with Galin and his little kid.
The Church history is ancient and originally the most ancient Christian Church that was there is probably from 5th or 6th century as in many other places in Bulgaria. The current Church (stone) building is from 1895 before the liberating war for Bulgaria with Ottoman Turkish.

Dormition of Virgin Mary Church is one of the important “landmarks” of Tsarevo.Though the church is on such a “desert” place it is fully functional; Holy Liturgy is served on each big Church feast and any tourist Christian can go during day hours 09:00 – 20:00 h for short prayer or supplication.

After the Holy Liturgy, I spend some time staring at the sea view from the rock on the back of the Church building. The panorama one get from the rock eminence behind the church is amazing beautiful (purely inspirational) …

Here are some pictures of the Church, I don’t hold copyright over the pictures, so the pictures belong to the respective persons who took them.

    Interesting fact I learned is old Tzarevo name is old byzantine name Vasiliko (Michurin). Also people who come hear might want to sea Ahtopol which is also a sea city nearby Carevo.

    Also for people who like Mountain. Strandha Planina (Strandha Mountain) is very near to Tsarevo so the place is perfect resort for people who like combining Mountain with Beach tourism.
