Hotels in Troyan

Visit Troyan and discover the beauty of the mountain

20.03.2013

There are many lovely destinations in Bulgaria that you should either have heard of or you have visited before. You might have had a great party at Cacao Beach in Sunny Beach resort or your family might have spent an unforgettable holiday in Bansko, but I doubt that you have visited Troyan.

Today I invite you to look further than the top holiday destinations in Bulgaria, unleash your explorers spirit and find the beauty of the picturesque Troyan town. Troyan is located in the northern part of Bulgaria, Lovetch district. It lies on the banks of Beli Ossum River, at the foot of the Stara Planina mountain.

Troyan is full of landmarks and it really offers exciting experience for those who like sightseeing and appreciate the value of cultural tourism. Troyan is famous for its nature parks in the area, museums, churches and cultural monuments. If you are inspired by our travel guide for Troyan, then you should know that one of your top landmarks should be the museum of arts and crafts which is located in the centre. It is one of a kind in Bulgaria and one can see exhibits that reveal the beauty and subtlety in various crafts wood-carving, pottery, icon-painting etc. The oldest exhibits date back to Х-ІХ B.C.

Another interesting place in Troyan is the Natural history museum. There you will find 700 species from the flora and fauna in the central part of Stara Planina. The house-museum of Ivan Hadzhiyski is located in the centre of Troyan and it will help you learn more for the renowned Bulgarian and the local traditions. The only art gallery in Troyan is Seryakova House. It houses 5 halls where the visitor will find art pieces of local artists.

Troyan Balkan is the most beautiful mountainous part that you will find here. Besides for sure you will like the real water cascade of waterfalls. Here there are 30 waterfalls and their height is over 20m. All of them are within the area of the nature reserve Severen Djendem. The next nature park in the area that worth visiting this spring is Kozyata stena. It is a small reserve that is the place where we keep the mountainous edelweiss, venerable oak and beech forests.

Troyan Monastery is one of the most magnetic places in the region and it is one of the most visited monasteries in Bulgaria. It is situated 10 km southeast of Troyan. The forests and the river Cherni Ossum makes the place truly ethereal and full of mystery.

If you like winter sports, you will be pleasantly surprised with your excursion in the region. Beklemeto is 15km away from Troyan. There are a couple of chalets and one ski run. The resort is particularly suitable for beginners, all winter sports fans who appreciate the tranquility and, last but not least, its a favourite destination for all of us who cannot live without the mountainous freshness. Mineral springs are also something that the region of Troyan is famous for. Dont miss the chance to visit Shipkovo and Chiflik where you will find peace and happiness, you will feel relieved owing to the healing properties of the mineral water.

No matter whether you are just curious to visit Troyan and the area, or you would like to find what this tranquility in the heart of the mountain is all about, you will like the history and the cultural heritage of the picturesque Bulgarian village.
