  • You need a car to get to this cave, is in the middle of the mountains. We were in the fall and was empty. There was just us and the employee who sells the tickets. It's about 50 meters high, carved in a mountain. Has very interesting frescoes. Worth the visit.

  • IMPORTANT: The cave is CLOSED from 1st of November until 31st of March. The first day you can visit it is 1st of April. The amazing Google edits do not allow me to leave notes or put seasonal working hours, therefore, my only hope is that you will see this message and save yourself the trip. And Google fix this stupid editing system PLS.
  • A very nice cave. The tour takes about 30-35 minutes. It has rooms with high ceiling and also places where you have to go down. It has also a narrow labirint which is very nice. The entrace is made with a guide and he makes the tour.
  • This is the second longest cave in Bulgaria, right after Duhlata with length of 13,437m. Discovered 1941 and opened 1957 is home to 14 species of bats. Has great view to a canyon.
  • A beautiful nature and surroundings. A fascinating cave presented in an interesting way by the guide. Strongly recommend visiting!
  • Great place to visit near Ruse! The tour guide was the best ever. If you plan to go there, be sure you have a sweater, you learn some french for the tour and have 6 leva for the ticket.
