Ledenika Cave


The crocodile, the giant’s head, the elephant, Santa Claus, and the falcon… no, this isn’t the title of a novel by C.S. Lewis. These are the names of some of the most impressive rock formations one will come across in the galleries of Ledenika Cave located in Western Stara Planina (Old Mountain), some 70 km north of Sofia. The cave is 300 m long and has a total of 10 rooms. The Pond of Wishes is yet another thing that makes Ledenika a popular place of interest. The legend has it that if you dip your hand in the water and make a wish, it will come true. Ledenika Cave is extremely attractive in the winter when its walls are decorated with fascinating natural ice sculptures.
