This church is in Plovdiv's old town. It has an unusual wooden bell tower and lovely murals inside as well in the portico. It is interesting that the design of this church is similar to the medieval church of St Stephen in Nesebar.

Differently than other churches in Bulgaria, this one is well illuminated in a way that you can see the nice fresco paintings. The priest is nice and he gave us the permission to take some pictures and to attend a baptism.
