The place is nice, but not really interesting if you are with children - there is no much to do in there.

'St Dimitar' church is located in the village of Patalenitsa (15 km away from the city of Pazardjik, 52 km from the city of Plovdiv and 115 km from the capital - Sofia) and it's a very good example of well-saved medieval bulgarian church. It dates back to late 12th century and a legend says that before the Ottoman invasion (XIV century) people from the village decided to bury the church, because it was the best way to save it. Then time passed and everyone forgot about the church, but in the middle of XIX century a man saw a metal cross coming from earth. Then people from the village remembered the legend about the buried church and discovered it. After that the building was reconstructed and in 1971 the church became a national-art-cultural monument. When you enter the church you will be impressed by its old and well-saved frescoes. The building is also well-saved. Unfortunately some that valuable frescoes has been stolen and due to the lack of tourists the church is not constantly open. But I think it's a very interesting cultural monument and if you pass nearby, you have to visit it. If the door of the church is locked, you will find a phone number written on the door (in case there is no number written, you can ask in the municipality building or somewhere nearby). A very kind lady will come and will tell you everything about the church. There is no entrance fee, but people usually leave some money inside the church. If you are interested you can find some additional information in the web site of the village of Patalenitsa (there is an English version there).
