If you are visiting Nikopol, you should stop by Ss Peter and Paul Church, which is known among the local folks as “the little monastery”. The church is a medieval building, dating back to the 13th-14th century, and built during the Second Bulgarian Empire. It represents a small cross-shaped basilica. Its name first appeared in historical sources in 1871 (Felix Kanitz’s notes), stating that the church has been used for a while by the locals as a Catholic one. Historical sources of Bals from 1914 indicate that the church had been already in ruins during this period. It was declared as a historic monument in 1927. Although the church needs repairing, it continues to enjoy its visitors with its medieval charm.
