The Magurata cave was inhabited from humans since the last palaeolithic age (8000 B.C.)
The most impressive thing there are the drawings. They are more than 100 and were made by the cave inhabitans using bat guano in various periods - epupaleolith, neolith, eneolith, the beginning of the Early Bronze Age.

It is is one of the largest caves in Bulgaria with total length of more than 2500 m of the galleries, discovered till now.

Visiting there is in groups of 10 people with a tour guide, so you may need until the group is formed. Entrance fee: 4lv, for children - 2lv, for a family - 8lv. The tour lasts about 1.5hours so plan enough time to spend there.

Equipment: it is about 12 degrees inside, so if you are visiting the cave in summer take a jacket. It is very wet and slip, so wear proper shoes. It is a cave afterall, so be prepared to get dirty.

location: 20-25km away from Belogradchik, 2km away from the village of Rabisha
From Sofia - take the way to Vidin till Dimovo, then turn to Rabisha and then follow the sings to Magurata

working time: winter: 9am-1pm, 1:30pm-5pm; summer: 9am-1pm, 1:30pm-6pm

There is also a wine cellar where Champagne-like wines are produced.
