Saeva Dupka Cave is one of the nine landscaped caves in Bulgaria. It is located near the village of Brestnitsa, Lovech region. Its name comes from the twin brothers Sue and Seyu, who used the cave as a refuge during the Ottoman rule. Animal bones, pottery and Roman coins were found during the landscaping of the cave. Saeva Dupka consists of 5 halls, the largest of which is the Landslide Hall. The first hall after the entrance is Kupena, so named because of the characteristic formation in the shape of a haystack. The second hall is the Landslide - it was formed during a big earthquake and is strewn with stone blocks. The next halls are Harmana, White Castle and Cosmos. Saeva hole is extremely beautiful - here are all kinds of cave formations - stalactites, stalagmites, sinter lakes, draperies and more.
