During this day tour, you will have the chance to visit one of the oldest Bulgarian cities, which has flourished continuously throughout history, as well as two of the must-see Bulgarian natural wonders.

The city of Lovech is located in northern Bulgaria. It was continuously inhabited since Thracian times. One of the main sites of Lovech is The Hisarya Fortress, built during the First Bulgarian Empire (681-1018 CE). The city kept its importance during the time of the Second Bulgarian Empire as well. Lovech continued to develop in the period of Ottoman rule and became the most significant commercial centers in the country. Highlights from this period are Varosha Quarter- reserve located in the old part of the town. It includes more than 160 restored houses which help create an authentic atmosphere carrying visitors back to those 19th century days.

18 kilometers northeast of Lovech is located Devetashka Cave - a picturesque karst cave. According to archeological research, it sheltered people since the late Paleolithic era. The cave is a protected landmark of national and international significance and has been declared a monument of culture. Also, during the Cold War was a secret warehouse for the fuel of the Air force.

Krushuna Waterfalls (approximately 16 kilometers from Devetashka cave) is one of the biggest cascades in the country, dropping at a height of 20 meters. A narrow eco-path will take you up steps, along several bridges, passing small natural water pools amongst the mossy, limestone rocks.

In the late afternoon, you will reach Sofia. Overnight is not included in the price.
