The Yagodina Cave, Pamporovo
The Yagodina Cave is located in the Buynovo Gorge near the Rhodoope village of Yagodina. It is one of the most famous and most-visited caves in Bulgaria. Its galleries extend to a length of 8,501 meters, which makes it the 4th longest cave in Bulgaria and the longest in the Rhodopes. The Yagodina Cave is a multi-level complex, primarily marble. The lowest level has been developed, but the cave has another two connected levels. Artifacts from the Neolothic Age (both the Stone Age and the Bronze Age) have been discovered there. Among these finds are earthenware plates, work implements, and an earthenware oven. The itinerary continues for another kilometer, affording visitors the opportunity to observe almost every type of cave formation, but most impressive are the many cave pearls.
