  • 벨라그라칙은 사실 여행객들이 잘 가지 않는 곳이다. 불가리아 여행을 하는 사람들 대부분은 소피아, 플로브디브, 벨로그라칙 그리고 흑해의 바르나나 부르가스정도를 방문한다. 벨로그라칙은 구글에서 본 이미지가 너무 강렬해서 호스텔에서 친구들을 모아 차를 렌트해서 방문했다. 정말 멋지다. 그 중에서도 마구라 동굴은 알타미라 동굴과는 또다른 선사시대 및 청동기 시대...  more »

  • One of the most amazing places I have ever been in my life. The cave is huge, 2.5km, it took us more than an hour to see everything. The cave is amazing, I most likely the cave itself than the draws on the wall made by the pre historical people, which dates more than 8 thousand years ago. If you like nature and some history, must see. The only point I didnt give 5 stars is because by the time we visited, the guide from the facilities just spoke Bulgarian, we glad someone with us could translate to English, otherwise we could understand anything.
  • The cave is truly wonderful and contains more than just the usual things you expect to find - bats, and the common formations like stalactites, stalagmites, columns, etc. There are fire places and the real highlight is a hall full of drawings from the paleolithic age most of which are fairly well preserved. They are mostly symbolic and not modern art so don't expect true and 100% accurate depictions and their value lies in their age, he fact people were capable of abstract art so long ago and of course the stories they tell. Be prepared though that due to the size of the cave and the many different interesting findings it has to offer the guided tour (non-guided entry is not allowed due to the value of the prehistoric drawings) may take up to 90 minutes (usually around 60 though) The only downside to the visit was that the guide went on rambling silly stories about aliens and other ridiculous and unproven (perhaps even not provable) interpretations which he presented as facts. So have it in mind if you suddenly start hearing about conspiracy theories. Credit to him though for his passion. Still, the facts should prevail and interpretations should be left to the visitors and scholars who study the cave.
  • Breathtaking cave, impressive and unique. A must see. Don't forget to take your jackets and put on hikers shoes, because it's quite slippery inside. Also find a friend to wait for you at the exit point or prepare to walk 1.5 miles back to the parking lot, where you left your car.
  • A unique experience - an overwhelming creation of mother nature and amazing cave man art.
  • Cool cave system covered in cave drawings. Watch out though, the floor is very slippery. The end isn't at the start, it's about 2km walk back, but you can get a lift of the guy who runs the ice-cream shop at the end for a small amount of money. Also, you have to pay for parking, so watch out for that.
