Eyes of God and Saeva dupka caves
The tour was designed for those of you who always appreciate the miracles that Mother Nature has created! In Bulgaria have been discovered about 5100 caves and 57 of them have been turned into tourist sites. On this tour we'll visit Prohodna (Eyes of God) and the Saeva dupka caves, presenting the combination of a typical cave with stalactites, stalagmites and stalactones, easy to walk around and the Prohodna cave, which is stunning with the two openings at the top of it which looked up from a certain angle do look amazingly like the Eyes of God!
Neither of the caves requires any special training except the usual proper shoes and some warm light jacket.
