100 National Tourist Sites

The Devetashka cave is located 15 kilometers northeast of the town of Lovech, near the village of Devetaki. It was discovered in 1921 and is one of the largest caves in our country. Its length is 2,442 m, its total area is 20,400 sq.m, and its height reaches 60 m.
The cave is entered through a gallery, which gradually expands into the largest cave hall in the Balkans. The hall is lit by seven openings called “windows”.

In the past, the cave was used to store food products from the state reserve, and later for a secret military site. In the 50s, it was used to store oil. In 1996, Devetashka cave was declared a natural landmark.
