Flor en el Monasterio de la Dormición de la Santísima Madre de Dios o Monasterio de Troyan (1835). Flor al monestir de la Dormició de la Santíssima Mare de Déu o Monestir de Troian (1835). Троянски манастир. ENGLISH The Monastery of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God or, as it is more commonly called, the Troyan Monastery is the third largest monastery in Bulgaria. It is located in the northern part of the country in the Balkan mountains and was founded no later than the end of the 16th century. The monastery is situated on the banks of the Cherni Osam near Oreshak, a village 10 km from Troyan in Lovech Province, and is a popular tourist destination. The main church of the monastery was reconstructed near the end of Ottoman rule during the Bulgarian National Revival period by a master-builder called Konstantin in 1835. The ornate interior and exterior of the church were painted between 1847 and 1849 by Zahari Zograph, a popular Bulgarian painter of the time, who also painted the central church of the Rila Monastery, the largest monastery in Bulgaria. Many of the "moral and social experiments" of art at the time such as Doomsday and Wheel of Life were reproduced at Troyan. One highly controversial move by Zograph was to paint his image around one of the windows in the back of the church. The iconostasis in the central church is a wood carving dating to 1839. The Troyan Monastery is also, since the 17th century, the home of one of the holiest icons in Bulgarian Orthodoxy, the Three-Handed Virgin. Many people make a pilgrimage to this monastery on St. George's Day because of an icon of St. George in the main church. The room, in which Bulgarian revolutionary Vassil Levski was hiding and meeting with other revolutionaries during the Ottoman period is a museum. CATALÀ El monestir de la Dormició de la Santíssima Mare de Déu habitualment conegut com el Monestir de Troian, és el tercer monestir ortodox més gran de Bulgària. Està situat a la part nord del país, a la Serralada dels Balcans, i va ser fundat a finals del segle XVI. El monestir està situat a la vora del riu Cherni Osam prop d'Oreshak, un poble a 10 km de Troian a la província de Lovetx, una popular destinació turística. L'església principal del monestir (Sveta Bogoroditsa) va ser reconstruïda el 1835, a la fi de l'Imperi otomà i durant el període del Renaixement Nacional de Bulgària, pel mestre arquitecte Konstantin. La decoració interior i exterior de l'església van ser pintades entre 1847 i 1849 per Zahari Zograph, un popular pintor búlgar de l'època, que també va pintar l'església principal del monestir de Rila, el més important de Bulgària. L'iconòstasi de l'església principal fou tallat en fusta el 1839.
