Zbruch Triglav

Triglav, as depicted on the bottom of the idol Bruski.

Triglav also sometimes called troglav is a deity in Slavic mythology. Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia, is unlikely to have any connection to the Slavic deity Triglav. However, such a claim is made for Mount Troglav, the highest peak of Dinara in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Triglav is depicted as representation of three major Slavic gods that vary from one Slavic tribe to others that serve as the representatives of the above mentioned realms. An early variation included Svarog, Perun, and Dajbog. Later, Dajbog was replaced by Svetovid or Veles. Triglav is usually described as a fusion of these gods. Triglav is depicted as a three-headed man sometimes with bands of (gold) blindfolds over his eyes, or a man with three goat heads. Several temples dedicated to Triglav existed near present-day Szczecin, Poland. During the period of Christianization, these temples and statues of Triglav were completely destroyed.
