Hey! We find ourselves again, and I’m glad! If you have a few free days then do not waste it! Surely you also love to travel! In today’s post, I will carry you through Bulgaria. A country with rich land, which preserves its history well in the suave smell of roses. You will love this tour and you will see plenty of places. I only had one day. But believe me that one day is not enough to see all the goals.
The first stop was in Veliko Tarnovo. Often referred to as the “Town of the Tsars”, Veliko Tarnovo is located on the Yantra River, being known as the historical capital of the second Bulgarian empire. The old part of the city is situated on the three hills Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Sveta Gora. On the Tsarevets hill you will find the palaces of the Bulgarian emperors as well as the Patriarchate, the Patriarchal Cathedral and a series of administrative and residential buildings, all surrounded by thick walls. You will need at least two days to visit this city. Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Momina krepost, Monument of Asenevci, you do not want to miss these sights! Find the Ego restaurants, here you can eat very well, and the prices are really good.

I had long wanted to get to Veliko Tarnovo and it finally happened. Unfortunately, I was pressed for time, and I could not visit all the goals, but I hope to come back soon. Anyway, I created wonderful memories in this chic city, even if I spent only a few hours here.
Devetashka Cave is located 18 kilometers northeast of Lovech and 2 kilometers from Devetaki Village. This cave was the second stop. The earliest traces of human presence date back to the early Stone Age (about 70,000 years BC). Devetashka Cave is among the cemeteries with the richest cultural artifacts in the Neolithic. The cave was declared a natural landmark by order no. RD 238/7 June 1996. You can not describe in words the beauty of this place, so you will have to see it with your eyes!
Prohodna is the most famous attraction in the Karlukovo Gorge (part of the Iskar-Panega Geological Park), one of the largest karst regions in Bulgaria and a popular location for speleology. It was formed during the Quaternary and has a length of 262 meters, making it the longest cave passage in Bulgaria. Prohodna Cave is known for the two eye-shaped ceiling holes, known as Oknata (Window) or God’s Eyes. You will feel the greatness of the world and of the universe. A magical place where you have to go, at least once in your life!
The Iskar-Panega Geopark route starts near Sofia-Pleven-Russe National Road, one hour away from the capital of Bulgaria, just before entering Lukovit. An easy, one-and-a-half-hour, lush, and a river of a distinct color flowing smoothly, mirrored the clear blue sky. Get your friends and spend here one of the most beautiful days of your life!
