Boyana Church

Besides the first layer of 11th-12th century frescoes, of which only fragments are preserved, and the famous second layer of murals from 1259, Boyana Church also has a smaller number of later frescoes from the 14th and 16th-17th century, as well as from 1882. A total of 89 scenes with 240 human images are depicted on the walls of the church, and 18 of those – located in the narthex – depict the life of Saint Nicholas. Two highly revered Bulgarian saints are also represented in the narthex – St. John of Rila (the oldest surviving representation of the saint) and St. Paraskeva (Petka).
