DescriptionThe Krushùna Falls will offer an excellent opportunity for a full-day escape from the city, especially during the hot summer months when one can enjoy a nice walk up the cascade and a refreshing dip into the natural pools along the way. The falls are the largest travertine cascades in Bulgaria, unique with its picturesque scenery, lush vegetation, numerous round shaped terraces and small natural pools with mineral water. The main waterfall is about 20 meters high and it splits into several smaller ones along its way down the soft limestone rocks. There is a path that allows visitors to go up the river and get to the spring of the waterfall hidden in a cave. Along the way, there are steps and bridges so that one can get the best views of the cascades, pools and mossy rocks. In the rocks around the Krushùna Falls, one can spot a few ancient caves that were inhabited by Christian hermits practicing Hesychasm, an Eastern Orthodox mystical tradition of prayer in solitude and seclusion, in the 8th to 14th-centuries. The cave next to the waterfalls consists of an enormous open chamber illuminated by seven holes in the ceiling. The Devetàshka cave is a picturesque karst cave near the waterfalls. Unlike other caves, Devetàshka is well lit and its floor is covered by lush greenery, especially in spring and summer, so sometimes, it is hard to believe that one is actually underground. The tour will start early in the morning from your hotel. By car, you will go with your professional guide to the waterfalls. After exploring the site, you will have a lunch in a local restaurant. Afterwards, you will head to the cave. Later, you will head back to Sofia.
