Description of Snezhanka Cave

 

Snezhanka Cave was known to men centuries ago. Several artifacts indicate that ancient tribe of local Thracians made their way inside the underground tunnels. However over time Snezhanka was forgotten and rediscovered only in 1961. Despite its short span of about 145 meters in length it is one of the most beautiful caves in Rhodope Mountains as well as all of Bulgaria. It contains pretty much every geological formation of the cave: stalactites, stalagmites, sinter lakes, and flowstones. Different shapes also have their names. This include Sarakatsan, the Statue of Liberty, the Dwarfs, the Parrot, and Snow White. The cave itself is made up from different chambers cut by the waters of Novomahlenska River. This includes the Big Room, Music Romm and Udder Room.
