The cave itself is interesting and somehow beautiful as the walls are calcareous (I suppose), so they have nice curves. They look nice in pictures. There is a lot of misinformation about it on the net. They say visiting hours are between 9 and 17, each hour. Actually, it is between 10:20 and 17, and it is not hourly. Those... More

In case you do not have claustrophobia it is a great experience to get inside this unique cave system. The guides are very good, there is even a place to have a tea outside.

It's the second longest cave in Bulgaria and is located at 11 km Eastern from the town of Dve Mogili. Paths inside are well lighted and easy to walk through. Since 1963 it is a natural landmark and since 1978 it is an archaeological cultural monument with national importance. The total length of the galleries is more than 13 500... More

The cave is quite interesting, but our guide spoke very little English. Unless you speak Bulgarian, you won't understand a thing. It's worth a short visit if you're in the area.

I visited the place during a business trip in North Bulgaria, with other tour operators. The guide is well trained and prepared for presenting the cave.

Although hard to access without a car (the only way is 5 km walk from the small railway station Tabachka), it is worth of visiting this cave. The cave is open between April and October (inclusive), but no matter what time of the year you visit, the temperature is always 13-14 degrees Celsius. There are several halls which are accessible...
