  • Troyan Monastery-the third largest after Rila and Bachkovo monasteries in Bulgaria. Each of them is attractive and compare them pointless. They have settled down so as not to compete with each other and embraced by strangers and pilgrims travelling to different parts of the world. In the troyan monastery can be reached by city bus from the Trojan, but he runs irregularly or optional. Five years ago, I came here for the first time by taxi from Sofia. Yesterday-on a passing car from Shipkovo. Time seems to have stopped in the monastery yard and an ancient Church. Except on the tomb of Patriarch Maxim appeared white stone cross (five years ago was in a monastery a week after his funeral). The last time visited the cell where he was hiding in. Levski. This time around, deliberately bypassed the small monastery cemetery, where were archimandrites and monks, as well as townspeople, who left an imprint on the life of Trojan.

  • Тhe third largest monastery in Bulgariа - Troyan Monastery is a nice and very well preserved monastery worth visiting.
  • A beautiful&peaceful Monastery...less crowded than Rila and more authentic. Not to miss if you visit Bulgaria
  • Amazing atmosphere, and the priests even invited us in their home, at the beautiful balcony, they were amazing and interesting to talk to, at the end of our visit, they even gave us a icon and a cross! I can't wait to visit them again 💖
  • Beautiful place!
