Troyan monastery

The monastery, which is the third largest in Bulgaria, is picturesquely situated on the banks of the Cherni Osam River near the village of Oreshak, 10 km from Troyan. It was founded around 1600 (Abbot Kalistrat), probably before that. Legend has it that monks from Mount Athos went to Wallachia with the sanctuary of the monastery – the miraculous icon of the Mother of God Troeruchitsa, which is a copy of the old miraculous icon in the Hilendar Monastery (XIV century).

The arch of freedom

Near the Troyan Pass is the monument "Arch of Freedom" - on Mount Goraltepe (1595 m), located 15 minutes east of the highest point of the pass Beklemeto. The monument is a massive concrete structure 35 meters high.

The arch is dedicated to the "Russian and Soviet liberators". There is a narrow asphalt road to the south side of the ridge. The monument is located on the north of the valleys of Beli Osam and Troyan, and on the south there is a view of Sredna Gora, the Rhodopes and the Rila Mountains.
