Ledenika Cave

The Ledenika Cave is located around the town of Vratsa, in the territory of Vrachanski Balkan Natural Park. Ledenika is situated 830 meters above sea level in the Vratsa mountain. Its name comes from the icy stalagmites, stalactites, and columns. These icy formations were formed during the winter at the beginning of the cave. The Ledenika Cave was declared a natural landmark, and it became a protected area in Bulgaria on November 28, 1960. Visitors can take a tour of the cave beginning at the Anteroom, the lowest part of the cave. Throughout the tour, visitors will walk through the Plaznyata and Large Concert Hall.
