"Holy Ascension" Church, Chiprovtsi

The temple dates back to 1677. It was built on the foundations of an older church, probably from the Second Bulgarian Empire. There were wall-paintings from XVII century. The frescoes in the nave were created by Daniel from Stip in 1877. The same artist painted the icons in 1865. "St. Nicholas" Church has never been recovered since its destruction during Chiprovsko Uprising in 1688.
