Village Cherni Osam

Village of Cherni Osam, Lovech, BulgariaA couple of kilometres beyond the Troyan Monastery (North - Central Bulgaria), buses from Troyan come to rest in the village of Cherni Osam, an unspoilt logging community which provides an excellent base from which to explore the upper reaches of the Cherni Osam valley and the Central Balkan National Park, an extensive nature reserve which lies just south of the village.
The village Cherni Osam was established by freedom-loving and rebellious Bulgarians 300 years ago. It has kept its striving for national independence and turned to be a fortress of the Bulgarian national spirit.
It`s also home to a small Natural History Museum, located at the southern end of the village. Stuffed examples of the local wildlife are on show, including stags, bears and wolves, some mounted on revolving pedestals, with background tapes playing the appropriate howls and growls.
There are a couple of friendly, family-run boarding-houses (bookable through the tourist offices in Troyan).
