Description

Uhlovitsa Cave is famous for its wealth of speleothems, especially the abundance of cave coral and helictites. The end of the cave is formed by Seven Lakes, but those rimstone pools are water filled only in spring. The cave is named after a certain type of owls which are called Uhlovitsa in Bulgarian.
