Project Prompter

The following cultural assets need reconstruction, restoration and/or renovation:

Holy Virgin Medieval Church, village of Pastuh, Kyustendil District

It is non-operational. It requires urgent restoration.

In the spring of 2009 a road was built to the church, so it is already accessible for visitors – something that was a real challenge in the past. The area around the church has been cleared of shrubs and trees, the roof has been renovated, but the frescoes are still in very a bad condition and await the competent interference of a professional fine art restorer!

Saint Dimitar Medieval Church, village of Tsarvenyano, Kyustendil District

It is abandoned. Urgent restoration is required.

In view of the architecture and mural paintings of the old part of the church, which are typical for the Upper Struma lands, it can be dated to the 15-17th century.

Today the church is in a deplorable state and any delay in its reconstruction may prove fatal for its further existence!

Saint Nikola Medieval Church, village of Vukovo, Kyustendil District

It is non-operational. It requires urgent restoration.

In the spring of 2009 a road was built to the church, so it is already accessible for visitors – something that was a real challenge in the past.

Saint Todor Medieval Church, town of Boboshevo, Kyustendil District

It is abandoned. Urgent restoration is required.

In 1962 it was "packaged" with wooden structure in anticipation of full restoration. This lasted until 19 August 2010, when the protective structure tumbled down and collapsed onto the old building. Many reports have been submitted to the competent institutions alerting them to the harsh condition of the church.
