Troyan Monastery, Devetashka Cave and Krushuna waterfalls
A rare but pictouresque one-day trip to the Troyan Monastery, Devetashka Cave and the Krushuna waterfalls - an excellent combination of nature, culture and religion. An easy single-day experience, where travelers will enjoy a day out of Sofia, visiting breathtaking waterfalls, unique mother Earth's cave formation and the third biggest monastery in Bulgaria! Also for lunch a visit to the city of lylacs is planned . . . .
After starting from the agreed pick-up point, we'll take about a 3-hour drive to the area of the Krushuna waterfalls and the Devetashka cave. The waterfalls became particularly popular for a visit for the last 20 years, as around them a beauttiful natural park has been arranged. The waterfalls are a number of cascading limestone formations, really a breathtaking view and feeling when you climb some of the steps taking you in the middle ot the falls!
Devetashka cave was revealed recently to the public as for over 30 years it's been turned into a military secret storage point for fuel and became especially popular after the movie "The Expendables" was shot here.
We will make a stop at Lovech for a lunch break and some souveniers and continue to:
Troyan monastery keeps one unique original icon of Virgin Mary dated 13-14 century. The place is also great with its wonderful location nearby one town of craft masters. Not to speak about the architecture of the monastery and the beautirful frescoes in its church.

We had a great day with Philip seeing more of Bulgaria's natural wonders! Philip is incredibly knowledgeable about Bulgarian history and very open and easy to talk to about current affairs in the country. We loved seeing Krushuna Falls and Devetashka Cave so much that we opted to go instead to Saeva Dupka cave rather than the Troyan Monastery. Philip was also willing to help us arrange an airport taxi for very early in the morning later in the week, which was greatly appreciated & beyond our expectations!
