Serapion's cave, Bulgaria



Serapion's cave is suited in the west part of the Balkan Mountain and is known as the place where a monk called Serapion lived. It is 129 m long and has 32 m denivelation. There are series of drops and it is called chasm-like cave, as the first one is 13 m and is close to the entrance. Nowadays there are no more monks living inside but rather it is a breeding ground for several types of bats and other animals and during the breeding season entry is prohibited. I made mistake and the cave is not the first one that I focused, but rather the second two openings, which where close to each other.

Also there is the so called "New Cave", which I am not sure which one is exactly, but it was closed until 1962, when some shepherd noted that the snow melts around the area and shortly after that opening was made with the use of explosives. That cave is 69 m long with 15 m denivelation.
