Itinerary Details

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Sofia. Just an hour and a half driving distance from Sofia, you’ll find one of the most spectacular caves in all of Bulgaria - Saeva Dupka Cave. The cave is, filled with massive stalagmites, stalactites, and other fantastic cave formations. The height of the cave varies from 8 meters to 32.5 meters over the various halls, with a total area of about 3,500 square meters. The age of the cave is between 1 and 3.4 million years. Тhe cave is absolutely stunning, and is not accidently called the “underground pearl of Bulgaria”. The cave consists of five halls.
Acoustics in one of the halls is remarkable, so many concerts have been performed here.
We continue to the Glozhene Monastery where we will have lunch. The monastery is located about 17 km from the village of Glozhene, from where comes its name. It is believed that in the 13th century the Kiev prince Gloj, who received the region as a gift from Tsar Ivan Asen II, built in the area the monastery of St. Preobrazhenie and a small fortress. The monastery consists of a church and residential buildings. They make a round yard around the church. It is set on a high stone terrace and is surrounded by steep rocks that give it the appearance of a monastery-castle. The monastery offers a unique panoramic view of northern Bulgaria. We will spend some time in the area and then we will set back to Sofia and your accommodation.
