Objectives & Structure:
This article gives detailed and well structured information on the Boyana church as an architectural monument and the frescos and their artistic value. The multiple good photos and the links to further readings /in English/, as well as to a virtual tour site presenting the site prior to its restoration in 2006, and a flash-panorama with photos presenting the frescos after the restoration will be very useful in the learning process.
The site does not require special learning skills and is a very good self-learning item.

The provided information can be incorporated into a training course, which, due to the good historic, architectural and artistic references can provide the learners with comprehensive knowledge of the art at the Boyana church.
