This is one of the best monasteries to visit. The frescos on the outside of the church really get your attention. The inside of the church is well-done, as well. Seems to be an active, working parish.
The local way of living
If you are interested how people in and around Troyan have lived in the past, you should go out of the town in the nearby villages where people still have way of living similar to their traditions. There you will see how they make their own food - because here they have all the food on the table homemade except the bread. Local people have their own small farmings and make their own meat, sausages, milk, cheese, many kinds of fruits and vegetables, nectars and alcoholic drinks, bee-honey, and so on. Nowadays all these activities are easily managed by the infrastructure - electricity, machinery and others, but many of them remain the same as they were 50 or 100 years before.
