Caves in Bulgaria have been attracting tourists with their beauty for hundreds of years. Most of them are available year-round, but it is advisable to visit them from late spring to fall.

The Devil's Throat in the Trigrad Gorge is impressive and majestic. It does not stand out as far as unique cave formations but has a huge hall and the highest underground waterfall in the Balkans. It is one of the most mystical caves in Bulgaria, around which are woven legends and secrets. If there is hell, then the entrance to it is right here, among the Rhodope Mountains.

Devetashka Cave impresses not so much with cave formations as its huge outer hall where one can feel nature's greatness. Here, nine species of bats and dozens of species of protected animals are sheltered.

Saeva Dupka cave is unique in its color: it is all green, brown, and white. This cave has terrific acoustics, like the cathedral and various exciting cave formations.

Prohodna cave, with an underground lake, whirlpools, and God's bridge, showcases the real destructive power of water. Behind the rock you will discover an incredible rock labyrinth.

Among the other popular cave hiking routes, you will find the Snejanka Cave, a pearl of the Rhodope Mountains famous for its underground halls' indescribable beauty. Ledenika is another renowned for its karsts formations and ice-cold waterfalls. This ice kingdom of exceptional beauty produces a stunning impression. Along with the above-mentioned caves, pay attention to the Yagodinska Cave. A path to it lies through the picturesque Buinovo Gorge.
