#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.

  • If you expect to arrive, buy a ticket and after 5-10 minutes to admire the cave-chances are that you have not come out. The cave allowed groups of parties. It so happened that in our case, the empty seats were later 2:00. Entrance 500 r. + shooting 1 EUR Down luck cool:) trolley Honestly, for the first time was in a cave and I guess it's not my ... as that represented more colorful and staloktity on juicier. I am glad to see that the cars are changing, in a cave set audio equipment, lighting, CCTV, changing stainless steel railings-money spent on tickets go to the cause. One of the few places equipped technologically and in terms of security. CASS in the lobby with free Wi-Fi ... current tssss:))

  • It's worth the wait and the time to see this huge cave with metro like train that will transport you down and then back up.
  • Amazing visit
  • Amazing place! If you come by car, near the cashier is paid parking. In the off-season, the cave is not open every day, but only if the book places travel agencies. The cave is taken on the new train. And the cave changed the railings on the walkways. Sad that unscrupulous tourists, even in the cave manage to leave trash. Tour duration: 1 h 20 m during this time you will visit all the open halls of the cave, especially anywhere without lingering. Surprisingly, new Athos cave is not the largest cave in Abkhazia nor in length, nor on the volume of the cavity. By volume it is significantly inferior to the snow cave, and in length is not included even in the top ten longest caves of Abkhazia.

  • One of the most unique and beautiful places. Equipped with everything quite well. Neat tunnel with a modern train before the tour. Within many lighting bridges stand for transitions from different rooms that change. Guide to explain briefly gives all the necessary information. Definitely worth your money.

  • Natural wonder! All interesting, wonderful accompaniment, interesting story. With young children do not recommend. Damp, cold (even in summer), dark. Adults also have warm clothes and comfortable shoes without heels (you can take the same place narokat). Minus that constantly delays and delays (and throughout Abkhazia), the microphone is not working properly, the music in one room could not include. The high cost of tickets. Photo and videos'emka.
