Go for a 1.5-hour nature hike on arrival to explore the natural phenomenon of the Prohodna cave. Learn why the locals call it the Eyes of God.

Journey through the largest cave passage in Bulgaria, and then continue to the Sueva dupka cave, where 5 halls and 400 meters of corridors reveal some of the most beautiful stalagmite formations in Bulgaria.

Continue in the afternoon with a visit to the 13th-century Glozhene Monastery, perched like a bird’s nest on the northern slopes of the Stara Planina mountain.
