#1 of 13 in Things to do in New Athos
New Athos Cave was known for many years simply as "bottomless pit." At approximately 1,000,000 cubic m (35,314,667 cubic ft), this cave system is a must for professional and amateur speleologists alike. The caves are made up of nine enormous chambers, each containing geological features including underground rivers and lakes, large stalactites and stalagmites, seemingly bottomless ravines, waterfalls, and oddly shaped deposits. For the protection and preservation of the cave, you'll use a railway that takes you to three stops, where you can get out and travel along walkways to take in the sights. Wear shoes with a good grip and a jacket, as it can be cold in the caves. By using our New Athos day trip website , you can arrange your visit to New Athos Cave and other attractions in New Athos.

  • The cave is impressive for its size and beauty, it expressly to visit at least once in their lifetime. as in all caves trails are well equipped, interesting places are highlighted. The route takes about two hours time. The only thing that she is beautiful, but dead.

  • On the underground train, we headed into the underworld of stalactites, stalagmites, underground lakes. Interesting story guide accompanied our acquaintance with this secret beauty. Struck the longest of well-equipped caves. Acoustics in caves is gorgeous. If there's a surprise, you can even sing. The air is clean-clean-dust here just can't be. But the cave of coolness makes dress warmly. There is a possibility to buy small crystals kalcida-memory and luck.

  • A very interesting place. Immediately it becomes clear that the caves and grandeur pulls cavers. Interested in finding out about the history of discoveries, and especially myself the discoverer. A new subway line, the plant of Riga. New lights in the cave. New stainless steel rails along the route. Trips fall well and strictly organized.
