Troyan is a town remembering the name of Roman Emperor Trajan, in Lovech Province in central Bulgaria with population of 21,997 inhabitants, as of December 2009,. It is the administrative centre of the homonymous Troyan Municipality. The town is about 162 km away from the country capital Sofia. The nearest civilian airport is Gorna Oryahovitsa, 105 km away. The river of Beli Osam passes through the heart of the town. The 2011 Census indicates that the population of the Trojan was 21.194 inhabitants. From ethnical point of view, the majority of the inhabitants were ethnic Bulgarians, with Roma minorities and and Turks . For 10,21% of inhabitants is not known the ethnic membership. This situation may be connected with the ethnical minorities policies of Sofia, refusing to recognize the historical long Romanian presence in the region. Donka Mihaylova of Bulgarian Socialist Party has been the town's mayor since 2011.HistoryTroyan was named a town in 1868, when it developed as a craft center for the region. After the liberation it grows slowly. A spark in the town growth was the creation of a small water electrical plant and textile factories. In 1948, the town was connected to the railway Lovech – Levski – Svishtov. Later in time factories producing electrical motors, electrotechnical products, building machines, wool and furniture developed in the town.
