Bacho Kiro Cave is one of the best caves in Bulgaria. Go and enter this place, which is near to Dryanovo monastery. Dryanovo waterfall is also a really very beautiful place like Dryanovo ecopath. The pics are from 20th of October 2019.

I like nature there, a lot of foreigners are going there with caravans and tents.
there are also a lot of cliff climbers.
It’s good for family walk and adventure also for camping

Near the Dryanovo Monastery, the cave is one of the largest in Bulgaria. The interior is well defined for viewing. You can view it in a guide group every 1 hour. The fee is symbolic, and the guides not only tell you the learned text, they explain everything and answer your questions.
The transition is easy, the route is not very long. It is also suitable for children.

Bacho Kiro's pond is unique. We went down the long route and looked at great halls. The music hall is impressive. I did not like the fact that people destroyed the walls of the cave with coins to be lucky :(

We are so pleased we found this hidden gem! It is only 4 lev per person and there are two walks. a long and short one. Short one is 25 minutes approx. the floor is slippy in places so wear good shoes. It is a bit steep getting up to the caves entrance but there is a handrail. Inside there are some artefacts and some boards written in English explaining the history of the caves. The lights come on as you enter each section and there is information abut the bats that are protected and live there. It really is a wonderful cool escape on a hot sunny day also. Teamed with a visit to the Monastery and waterfalls, this is a real treat.

A bit disappointed from the Bulgarian tourist association. The only guidance inside the cave are small signs with lack of info. Only one recreation scene of early men at the entrance. The second (the longer) path inside, was closed and it was only for planned groups.
Be prepared for mud and wet ground. Also slippery floor.

Amazing place to visit. Rural and totally unspoilt. Lights come on so you can see where you're going. Incredible caves and stairways to upper chambers. Slippery here and there - so long as you have a commonsense attitude to self-responsibility, this is a fabulous place to visit!

Very pleasantly surprised - We spent 3+ hours here and were expecting a flying visit! The monastery is of significant historic importance to the Bulgarians and very pretty. Weddings and baptisms happen here even today. Free entrance. We paid for a guide.
The caves are huge and well worth the 3 lev entry fee. Long and short route, long route only open at 2pm (maybe a winter timing) until Oct 21. Wear sturdy footwear and hold the hand rails because it can be very slippy - not recommended for people who have any difficulty walking.
We then walked up steps to the right of the cave and lots of things up there. At the T junction right 5mins to top of waterfall. Left to “bench of love” & 2 amazing view points, 5 more mins to old fort. (Also up there “bozhentsi” is signposted but I don’t know what that was).
Finished w lunch in restaurant.

Depending what standards you are used to, this may not get 5 stars from everyone. The toilets in cafe are not modern. The cave walk hand rail had sharp parts where the lighting wires were attached and signage in the cave is old/tired.Be in charge of your own health and safety

We had a lovely day. Wished we brought a picnic to enjoy at the top!

The cave itself is not big and you can't really meet the bats, but it allows you to get as close as possible to the Stalactite.
