Have you heard of Prohodna cave or the Eyes of God in Bulgaria? We invite you to go to a magical nature place close to Sofia.
Prohodna cave: one day tour from Sofia
Prohodna cave is special with the “two eyes on its roof”. People say these are the Eyes of God. The holes at the roof, formed through erosion, let light into the cave. And during wintertime or on rainy days it seems somebody higher up is crying. Everyone, who stares up, gets a positive vibe and feels the nature’s magic. The Prohodna cave is a natural phenomenon, famous with its positive energy and the movies shot here. Some of them are Time of Violence, the Bulgarian movie from 1988, and the American movie: The Expendables 2.
Prohodna cave has two entrances, known as the Small Entrance (35m high) and the Big Entrance (45m high). We will see rock climbers and bungee jumpers. The size of the Big Entrance makes it suitable for bungee jumping.
Furthermore, in the afternoon we will visit the Glozhene monastery. The male monastery is a must see place in Bulgaria. It is located on a hill in the Balkan Mountains and there is a marvelous panorama view from the monastery to the Balkan mountains. So prepare your camera. Because it is worth the shot! The Glozhene monastery keeps the Bulgarian culture and spirit since 13th c. Its patron is St. George. Today 4 Bulgarian monks are living there.
