Behind the Church of Sveta Troitsa, there is the Neofit Rilski House - Museum that remembers another key figure in the 19th century resurgence of Bulgarian education and church life, Neofit Rilski. He was born in Bansko in 1793, was son of the local priest, Rilski looked set to join one of the local icon-painting studios until a visit to Rila filled him with enthusiasm for the monastic life. The museum holds a dully didactic display of photographs and (Bulgarian-only) text outlining Rilski's career.
