Although the road to the cave is not in best condition this cave is amazing. They have built inside a laser show room.

This cave like all the caves in Bulgaria has different characteristics. It has different beautiful rooms or galleries which have there own characteristic. The room in the entrance is the coolest and in the winter it is frozen that is why it is called Ledenika ( Led is bulgarian term for ice). In one of the room there is a pond of water, there is a belief that if you dip your finger in the pond and make a wish, your wish will come true. There is a park with sculptures of animation characters good for children just ourside the cave and an ecopath for those like to walk in the woods. In close vicinity there is a hija( small hotel) too.

I've rated this as average but it's probably slightly better than that. It is a complete complex, with lodge, restaurant and horse riding, about 10 miles from Vratsa. It has received plenty of investment and is of a good standard. The road up the mountain is a bit dodgy, although it is currently being repaired. Accessing the cave system is not difficult, and most people shouldn't have too many difficulties. There is a sound and light show in the main cavern, which seemed to go for quite a long time (most of the sequences were repeated three times). Ledenika is definitely 'a must' for visitors to this part of the country, but those seeking a more authentic (but still accessible) cave system might want to check out Saeva Dupka, which is about an hour away.

I found the stalactites, stalagmites, and stalagnate (when the two meet!) really pretty. If you have some imagination you can see all sort of figures and scenes. The cave is not particularly long or high, but there are a number of chambers, corridors and straits, each having its own stone figures and unique charm. I did not particularly appreciate the colored lighting, but I guess some folk might fancy it.
A guided tour starts every hour, but the laser show is only at 3 pm (as part of the tour).
I wish the municipality would do more to promote the place and lift the spirit of the people working there. I asked if I should leave a review for the tour and the guide didn't know what TripAdvisor was! Shame, as I am sure there are people whose some job is to promote tourism in the area.

We arrived at 12:00 and manage to get in the cave at 16:00. After waiting for 20 min a huge queque the cashier said we need fo get tickets for the group at 3pm after 2pm. At 2,15pm and after waiting again she said there are no more tickets for the group @3pm and they can fit us @4pm.The personel acted in a very impolite way. On top, we were with my young cousin she got tired and sleepy and we couldn't enojoy the attraction. Really bad organization and unhelpful staff.

Went there in December.
It is very hard to find the location on line. so go to Vratsa and follow the brown signs to ledenika. It is very well signposted. Although it is only 15km from Vratsa it is a good 30 minutes drive as it is up a very steep mountain. .
To give you another milestone. .you are climbing along an old ski chair lift.
At the top you will continue driving down the mountain to the cave.

We only speak English and the guide did his best to translate

It took the 7 of us 50 minutes to complete the tour.
It starts with 10 minutes video which maybe 2 minutes are about the cave and the remaining a lazer show that had nothing to do with it.
It feels they ruined the cave with all the pyrotechnics. .
Anyway it is beautiful inside.
Very cold but you get to touch and feel. ..climbe and if you want even crawl.
6 leva per adult
4 leva per child
In the summer there are other activities there for kids
Well worth the visit but forget about the coffee in the near by "restaurant". .It tasted like cleaning fluid. ..

The cave is 15 km from the town of Vratsa. In the past, the sheperds used to keep the sheep`s milk inside it. It`s huge and has many galleries and interesting formations. It has amazing acoustics.
It`s not very good attraction for families with small children, because of the many sheer stairs inside.

The Ledenika cave is nice although rather small. During winter season it is open only partially. The most interesting part is the biggest hall (concert hall) in which you will be able to listen and watch (projected on watter wall) a short video about the cave and you will enjoy laser show (10-15mins). The entrance costs 6 Bgn for adult (only possible to be paid by cash), and is open in winter till 4PM. The guided tour takes about 1 hour with explanation in bulgarian language. The tour guide was very nice and explained briefly the caves's history and most interesting facts in English as well. Overall worth to visit.
