Description

The city of Lovech is located in northern Bulgaria, approximately 150 km from Sofia, was continuously inhabited since Thracian times. One of the main sites of Lovech is The Hisarya Fortress, built during the First Bulgarian Empire (681-1018 CE). The city kept its importance during the time of the Second Bulgarian Empire as well. Lovech continued to develop in the period of Ottoman rule and become the most significant commercial center in the country. Highlights from this period are Varosha Quarter- a reserve located in the old part of the town. It includes more than 160 restored houses which help create an authentic atmosphere carrying visitors back to those 19th century days.
18 km northeast of Lovech is located Devetashka Cave, a picturesque karst cave. According to archaeological research, it sheltered people since the late Paleolithic era. The cave is a protected landmark of national and international significance and has been declared a monument of culture.
Krushuna Waterfalls (approx. 16 km from Devetashka cave) is one of the biggest cascades in the country, dropping at the height of 20m. A narrow eco-path will take you up steps, along several bridges, passing small natural water pools amongst the mossy, limestone rocks.
