Dragalevtsi Monastery, Sofia
Tucked in the woods on the slopes of Vitosha Mountain, this small monastery (a nunnery actually) has a tiny church with two apses. Unfortunately, the more interesting one (where the murals are) has been closed to visitors for a long time, and I suspect it is in terrible shape. The other one is really a glorified room, with an unpretentious iconostasis, and a few icons adorning the walls. There is always a nun sitting inside, and photography is not permitted (I only managed a few shots because she stepped outside for a minute).
