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. Use our New Athos itinerary planner to arrange your visit to New Athos Cave and other attractions in New Athos.

  • Coolest cave, I liked! I, of course, the first time, but there really is worth visiting, you can not only save money on taxis and not to take the trip because you will lose a lot of time for arrivals on all sorts of tasting honey, wine, cheese and even deliver these excursions in its eateries, which will have some time to restore its digestion. Don't forget your sweater.

  • Traveling on his car and went to this place on its "wheels". Near the cave parking boys take on 50 rubles for care of auto))) not the money he gave and was calm for the car. About the tickets be prudent tickets sometimes in short supply, some complaining that tickets available only at 3-4 hours in advance, we are fortunate to have tickets to enter through 40 minutes was just time to stroll around a small market nearby. With tensions come because even if you drive yourself, then you still tour guide and conducts group gaining greater so that the train was completely filled. The tour begins with a trip to the monopoezde in the depth of the mountains, there is a guide all collects and begins a tour. We went with a small child (4 years) he quickly tired and spent it on hands and safer in my opinion, because in some caves water drips from the ceiling directly on the appointed footbridge, there formed almost skating rink, so be careful. Some talk about cold and warm things with each other, agree on this point but mostly for children and those who merzljavyj, in summer on the contrary good shelter from the heat. Excursion in principle liked, interesting story, I recommend to visit.

  • The cave is beautiful, I was not in others, I am not comparing anything. Their money is to attend recommend. Moreover, that is not so, and expensive. There are cool, and it's so cool, especially when there at the top of the heat.

  • Parking fee 100rub. From the "guard" would be ohranit'sja. For 100 USD sells dubious kind of pieces of paper with the inscription "150 rub". Polurabotajushhij toilet under parking (no other) with bomzhevatymi hamovatymi and aunt at the entrance. Apparently bottle collecting. The entrance to the cave of 500 rubles. The right photography 50 rubles. Cave "made in USSR". From the modern flag of only drew. Nature is beautiful, worth a look. But on tours and heavily drunk and someone had SMOKED in the cave ...
