The Red Doors House - Trip to YagodinaA one-day trip to Yagodina
#This captivating mountain village was not called this way because of the numerous wild strawberries ("yagoda" means "strawberry" in Bulgarian), which the locals call with the juicy name "zonitsi", but because of the strawberry red colour of local women's cheeks and their gentle smiles. The colour associations in the name correspond to the colours you will see in the Yagodinska Cave. The last few kilometres before the cave are a real driving adventure – it is a two-way, one-lane road along the river, inside the fault of the Buinovsko Gorge.

#The passage underground takes 1 hour at a temperature of 6 degrees Celsius, so it would be wise to bring some warm clothes with you. The Yagodinska Cave abounds with various cave formations and is one of the most beautiful maintained caves. Bring a camera with you. Groups go in every hour, the last one is at 16:00.

#There is one more floor in the cave that you can visit. It is not so beautiful, but it has a preserved cave lodging from the eneolithic age. A highlight here is the furnace for baking pottery, which the locals used to trade with dwellers of other caves in the region. Looking around and hearing the lecture takes about 40 minutes. The entrance for this floor is about 2 minutes upstream the river, after you leave the tour of the floor with the cave formations.

#Lunch options: in front of the Yagodinska Cave's entrance there is a restaurant, where you can have lunch.
