About Krushuna Waterfalls and Devetashka Cave:
The Krushuna waterfalls (Maarata) are located near Krushuna village, Letnitsa municipality, Lovech region. It is the largest water travertine cascade with many thresholds, pools and rich plant and animal species. The first and largest waterfall of the cascade is the 15-meter-long Praskaloto, which, along with the next smaller waterfalls, are commonly called Krushuna Waterfalls. It is divided into several sleeves and creates several more waterfalls. The way is damp and saturated with water drops. The area is completely impassable. Without the stairs and the eco-path you can not reach the source of the waterfall. It is hidden in the cave of the same name. Under limestone rock thereto is a narrow path.
For the convenience of tourists, there is an eco-path where one can enjoy the exquisite picture inspired by the crystal water of the waterfalls and the fresh green vegetation of the surrounding area for hours. The path starts at the lowest part of the cascade and gradually ascends to the top of the cascade to descend again down to the starting point of the route. It takes about an hour and a half to get around all the sights along the eco-path without hurrying.
Only 15 km from Krushuna waterfalls are located Devetashka cave. One of the biggest caves in Bulgaria. Its entrance has a height of 35 meters and a width of 30 meters. The Devetashka cave is dry, very spacious and well protected from strong air currents. There are seven huge openings on its ceiling, called by the local Oknata. From the central hall about 200 m from the entrance are separated the two branches. The left is more than two kilometers long, through which runs a small river that passes through the central hall and flows into the Osam River. The right one is dry and warm. Its entrance has a height of 2.5 m and a width of 5, 70 m. Inwards it expands and forms a rectangular hall – 50 m long and 10 – 15 m wide. This branch ends with a small circular gallery known as the Altar.
