Devil's Throat cave

Devil's Throat cave
map Devil's Throat cave

This cave is named Devil's Throat (Dyavolsko garlo) because of a legend. The Trigradska river flows into the cave and as it seemed, that the water never reappeared - at least nothing thrown into the river ever reappeared - the locals called it Devil's Throat. The cave is being related with another legend as well. It is believed that Orpheus went down to the Kingdom of Hades exactly through here.

The cave is entered through a 150 m long artifical tunnel. The first hall is impressive in size, seeming as it could fit a whole mall. From this point a winding and steep concrete path leads down to the natural entrance of the cave. This cave contains numerous underground waterfalls, among them the second highest underground waterfall in any tourist cave of the world, which is 42 m high.

Devil's Throat is also famous for its animal species. A bat colony, which spends the winter in this cave, is the biggest colony of long-winged bat in Bulgaria and on that part of the Balkan Peninsula.

Not only this cave, but the whole area with its groges and natural bridges is recognized as national landmark and under special protection. Visitors can find excellent accommodation conditions in the nearby town of Devin or if one prefers a more relaxing atmosphere the picturesque village of he/she can stay in one of the many guest houses in the village Trigrad.
