If you visit this cave, you will see the tallest underground waterfall on the Balkan peninsula - 42m. It also has one of the biggest galleries in a cave, found in Bulgaria. The sound of the water falling down into the river is so loud, it can be heard from outside. According to the ancient legends - Orpheus went to search for Euridyce into the underworld, from this cave. The river at the bottom is another mystery - geologists are not sure where exactly it exits the cave, and multiple times they have put different objects in it, that then went out in different places.
