Крушунски водопад (Krushuna Waterfalls) is a series of rimstone pools which form numerous small waterfalls. The limestone rich water of the река Пройновска (Proinovska River) has the typical turquoise color. A footpath along the pools leads to the spring of the limestone rich water, a water filled karst cave named Крушунската пещера (Krushuna Cave). The 15 m high Пръскалото (Praskaloto) is the first waterfall in the series and is also the highest one.

Krushuna waterfalls are located on the northern slope of the Деветашко плато (Devetashko plateau), a karst area rich in karst features. In the area area two more locations with such rimstone pools exist, but both are much less spectacular. One is called Malkata Maara. There are also several wild caves in the vicinity, for example Маарата (Maarata), Урушка Маара (Urushka Maara), and Бонинска пещера (Boninska Cave).
