A large cave, with many interesting formations. Bats fly freely and can be seen even within reach, but be reasonable with your camera flash. A minus: no English guide and very few explanations. Take the trail on the left of cave (as you exit), marked...More

The picturesque cave has 300m long equipped with light and short exposition. It makes sense to visit together with Dryanovo monastery. From the cave you can climb to the terrace with panoramic views of the monastery and the surrounding mountains. It took us 15 minutes...More

For those used to exploring caves, the Bacho Kiro one may lack spectacular views. It is still nice to walk through the galleries but it doesn't offer much thrill. It may be recommended for those who need a first immersion into caves. What I enjoyed...More

Let me start by saying that I've been to many caves including the Cango Caves, which is one of the most impressive caves in the world, so my hopes for this cave were probably a bit high. Nonetheless, this is still a big cave with...More

This cave doesn't impress much. Maybe it is more remarkable for those who can go deeper in it. It doesn't take much efforts to look around inside it which makes it suitable for all ages. It has a long and a short route. We went...More

We were aiming for the Dryanovo monastery when we saw the signs to the cave. Although we're not really into caves, this one was easy to access. The short trip took us 20min inside and especially the "concert hall" was funny to play with. However,...More

Interesting to see, both for children and adults, even w/o an escort. Picturesque place and beautiful surroundings. The lightning could have been slightly better but not a major issue.

We didn't get to do the long walk due to time restraints, but the cave was very nice and with Dryanovo Monastery next door it's a must stop off point if you're in the area.
