  about Saint Archangel Michael monastery

The first monastery in Berovo was built between 1815 until it was consecrated in 1818. Enlightener Joachim Krcovski was among those present at the consecration. Historical data concerning the construction of the church and the monastery is inconclusive, but it is known that circumstances were very difficult.
The first female monastery, located at the exit from Berovo leading to the dam and the lake, was built in 1940 in a 19th century architectural opus, twenty years after the construction of the Monastery of the Holy Archangel Michael, and the first nuns were the daughter-in-law and the daughter of Friar Risto, a son-in-law of Friar Peco. They had their monastic tonsure (removal of the hair of the head) with a blessing from the Rila Monastery's abbott. Eugenia I was the first abbess of the monastery, the second – Eugenia 2nd, the third – Eugenia 3rd, and the fourth abbess was Eulampia in 1958 by the first Archbishop of Ohrid, His Beatitude Dositheus.
