This male monastery is located just outside of Berovo, along the road towards the lake. Presveta Bogorodica Balakija means Holy Mother - East Friday

The church was built in 1972-1975, on the foundations of two ancient earlier churches.

Every year on 28th August, the holy assumption of the great virgin Mary is celebrated here and allegedly thousands of people come to visit.
