About Belogradchik Rocks and Magura Cave:
The town is picturesquely located in the western part of Stara Planina, at the southwestern foot of the Belogradchik mountain range. Well-developed and friendly, Belogradchik is among the attractive tourist sites of Bulgaria. It offers opportunities for excursion, cave and congress tourism, mountaineering, hunting and fishing, sports and astronomical observations.
The Belogradchik fortress – “Kaleto fortress” is one of the best preserved in the country. Using the natural inaccessibility of the rocks, in the 1st – 3rd centuries the Romans maintained a fortress here to guard the strategic roads that crossed the area. The fortness controlled the Roman roads leading from the mountains to the town of Ritsiary (now the village of Archar in the vicinity of Vidin). In the past, the fortress has an important role in the history of the Romans, Byzantines, Bulgarians, Turks. From the highest part of the fortress, known as the First Plate, a unique panorama is revealed. In the south, the view reaches the ridge of the Stara Planina, from Mount Kom to Vrashka chuka, in the west it is attracted by the sharp copper mountains of the Carpathians, and in the lower reaches the picturesque Belogradchik rocks.
The total length of all the labyrinths discovered is approximately 2600 m, but tourists can see only 1750 m. Protected by UNESCO as a natural landmark, the cave resembles an underground cathedral and is one of the most striking tourist attractions in Eastern Europe.
What makes it truly unique are the exceptionally well-preserved ancient drawings, which have no analogue not only in Bulgaria. Similar ones have been found only in France, Italy and the Iberian Peninsula. Figures depict dancing women, hunting men, plants, tools, animals. Also in the cave discovered the earliest in Europe solar calendar, dating back to the Late Neolithic. The first traces of human presence in Magurata date back to 8 thousand years BC. People inhabited it until the Early Bronze Age.
