Bacho Kiro Cave

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Bacho Kiro near the town of Veliko Tarnovo is one of the most visited caves in the country. The first room, commonly referred to as the Antechamber, is of particular interest to explorers and archaeologists. Why? Well, during excavations there a huge set of precious artifacts dating back to the Paleolithic Era was discovered, that’s why. The peculiar karst formations resembling people and animals which can be seen in the other cave halls also attract the tourists’ attention but the most special feature of Bacho Kiro has to be the Purgatory – a small and narrow passage-way which is believed to let the righteous people through only.
