Troyan Monastery

"The Assumption"

10 km to the southeast of the town of Troyan and 27 km away from the hotel Feia in the northern skirts of the Troyan Balkan is the largest monastery in the Balkan Mountains - the Troyan monastery of the Assumption of Virgin Mary. It is situated at 400 meters above sea level under the picturesque wooded hillside of "Chukarka" amid wildlife.

The oldest icon is preserved in the main church of the monastery, the sacred icon of the monastery "Presvaria Bogoroditsa Troeruchitsa" - miraculous.

On January 20, 1872, Vasil Levski organized here a secret revolutionary monastic committee led by Abbot Macarius. Upon the outbreak of the April uprising, the commanding station of Voivodes Panayot Volov, Georgi Ikonomov and Toma Hitrov was revealed in the monastery. Even today, the cell in which the revolutionary affairs were discussed was preserved in its authentic form.

On August 15 each year is the feast of the monastery. On that date, the icon is exported from the Monastery. This is one of the three miraculous icons that many Bulgarians worship.

Museum of Natural History

The Cherni Osam Nature Conservation Information Center is located in the Natural History Museum in the village of Cherni Osam and functions in cooperation with it.

30 km. from Hotel Feya in the village of Cherni Osam you can visit the Natural History Museum. It presents the fauna of the Middle Balkan Mountains, and in the center the flora of the Central Balkan National Park. The center has a rich library, a children's playground suitable for educational events with the youngest children, a video library with films revealing the natural resources of Bulgaria.

The spirit of Central Stara Planina was captured in the three halls of the museum. There are more than 700 stuffed animals inhabiting forests and mountain peaks and rivers. The attraction room is the most entertaining. In it are collected various mammals and birds, predators and grazing like deer, deer, boars, bears, wolves, foxes, eagles and others. When visitors walk past the exhibits, they can hear the sounds and the song of every mammal, reptile, and bird.

The colorful insect collection stacked in the second hall is also very interesting and valuable from a scientific point of view. Representatives of poisonous and non-indigenous snakes, such as vipers, whiskers and tusks, are exposed in the same room. About 120 species of raptors, songbirds and waterfowl flying on the Central Balkan & rdquo; also attract visitors with their beautiful plumage and pride

On the second floor there are diorama showcases with large photographs behind the exposed animals depicting their environment. Here are shown a family of deer, noble reindeer, deer-deer, bears, boars, wolves, jackals, wild cats, pores and many others. The museum is extremely valuable because it can only be seen in an hour and explore animals that we may never encounter in their natural surroundings. It is enough to spend a little time at the Natural History Museum, watching the stuffed animals and listening to their recorded voices to realize how valuable and important the wild nature is. The animals are very nice and even look like big plush toys, but from their stands they gaze at us with their glass eyes and send us a silent message. And it says we have to keep our living relatives and take care of nature because we are part of it.
