Ledenika Cave

"Ledenika" cave is one of the most visited caves in Bulgaria. It is open for visits throughout the year. It is located 16 km from Vratsa. Next to it there is an asphalt road that passes through the Vrattsata pass, meanders along the rocks and forest massifs of the Vratsa Balkan and reaches the very entrance of the cave, which is located at 830 m above sea level. The cave is 320 m long and has 10 halls. In the first hall, the temperature drops to minus 20 degrees and a huge ice column forms. This is a phenomenon because in the cave itself the temperature is constant and is around 8-16 degrees. Air humidity is 92%.

"Ledenika" has some of the most beautiful halls and formations - "Lake of Desires", "Passage of Sinners" and others. Here is also the most attractive cave hall in the Balkans - the "Concert Hall", which has incredible acoustics. The Vratsa Philharmonic performs symphonic concerts there. From here, on iron bridges, you cross the Little and Great Gap, through the "Zaveskite" corridor and reach the "White Hall". The highest point in the "Glacier" is called the "Seventh Heaven".

The cave is one of the 100 National Tourist Sites of Bulgaria.
