The Devil's Throat cave is situated 1 km from the village of Trigrad in the marvellous Trigrad Gorge.
The cave is lit by many lamps so you don’t need to take a torch with you unless you want to explore in detail all the niches in the rocks. After a long artificially dug corridor you will find yourself in an enormous gallery. Its size is compared to that of the Alexander Nevski Cathedral in Sofia. It was formed as a result of the collapse of earth layers in the past.
If you look at the stone walls more carefully you will find a carved devil’s face and some other figures which I will leave for you to discover. From a staircase built for tourists you can see the river at the bottom of the gallery, disappearing with roar in the dark abysses below.
If you visit the cave in the spring you can also see one of the highest underground waterfalls in Europe – 42m.
Just before the natural entrance of the Devil’s Throat there is a very steep staircase at the upper end of which you can see the light streaming in from the outside.
The entrance fee for the cave is 4 leva ( 2 euro) and the guard will let you in only after a group of at least 5 or 6 people has gathered. You need warm clothes and waterproof shoes for the cave as it is really cold (8°C constant temperature, 40F) and damp in there.
