This is an authentic place and according to National Geographic is one of the most mystical caves worldwide. We went there in the autumn when the mountain is full of splendid foliage colours. The road goes through a winding gorge and takes your breath away. A friendly warning to the visitors: don't buy honey from the local sellers because it... More

It's unique and worth seeing. A group is welcomed every hour and there is a guide. The nature is beatiful and as if the mountain embrasses you :)

Amazing grotto. No need for explanation, cerainly because there is no (apart from a leaflet in English) if you do not speak Bulgarian. Quite a walk in the grotto and a VERY long flight of stairs to get to the exit. The nature around the grotto is also beautiful.

Amazing cave situated in the Rhodopes, one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, also because is really different from caves I'm used to. The visit is not long but the sight is breathtaking and once I climbed the stairs to get out form the rocks I felt really thrilled. The legend says that this is the place where the... More

Although not that big and the walk is rather short inside, the cave is still must see for those who admire the natural beauty. It is located in one of the most amazing and beautiful parts of Rhodopi mountain. The road to Trigrad in this part is so narrow with rocks like hanging from the sky, embracing you kindly but...

Really cool cave, definitely have to go in it when visiting Trigrad. Climbing the stairs is not for those who easily get scared.

This cave visit is great as a guide will let you in with the whole story about the cave's name and the expeditions inside it down and further the river that goes through Greece and ends in Aegean sea. Many rare bat spieces live there. Outside the cave you can hear the rhodope mountain's bagpipe and buy local, ecological honney... More

A cave with history. There's a big hall with a river flowing through it and a waterfall behind some rocks, the cave itself is not with many rock formations but it's worth to be seen. Also the rocks around the cave's entrance are cool.

An awe inspiring place to visit and see. There are plenty of legends and stories to be told of this place. Guided tour is in Bulgarian but information sheet in English is available included in the ticket price. The steps are not for anyone frightened of heights. Take warm clothing too!
