Saeva dupka is located near the village of Brestnitsa, in Lovech region. It is well laid out and accessible for tourists. Saeva Dupka cave consists of 400 meters of corridors and 5 galleries, the largest of which is Srutishte hall (Demolished). Another interesting gallery is The Harmana. It has such excellent acoustic that often concerts are held in it. The cave is very beautiful – it contains all kinds of cave formations – stalactites, stalagmites, sinter lakes, draperies, etc. The circuit of the halls leads around the largest stone column found so far in Bulgaria.

Prohodna cave is one of the most famous caves in Bulgaria. It is located near the village of Karlukovo, approximately 115 kilometers from Sofia. The cave is 262 meters long and it is naturally illuminated by two huge openings in the ceiling (result of natural erosive forces) which resemble eyes. Because of this the cave is also known as “The Eyes of God”. Prohodna cave has 2 entrances – a small one and a big one. The large entrance is 45 meters high – the highest in Bulgaria.
Devetashka Cave is located 18 km northeast of Lovech. It is a picturesque karst cave, 2442 meters long and 60 meters high. It is one of the most beautiful caves in Bulgaria full of stories from the “Cold War” to Holywood productions.

According to archeological research, it sheltered people since the late Paleolithic era. The cave is a protected landmark of national and international significance and has been declared a monument of culture. The cave is naturally illuminated by several holes in the ceiling.
