Krushuna waterfalls

Krushuna waterfalls

The Krushuna waterfalls are one of the most attractive sights in the area. They are located 35 km north-east of the town of Lovech, in the Maarata region. In order to help the tourists, these incredible beauties are very easy to reach. There is a built eco-path, which starts from the village of Krushuna and its route is rich in bright colours and charm. You can even reach the very spot, from which this unique natural attraction springs.

Krushuna waterfalls

The Krushuna waterfalls consist of numerous karst terraces and the constant water flow has shaped countless small rock rapids and uneven spots covered with thick moss. This creates a grand display of a million water droplets flying around the air. There are small lakes and pools all over the place, some of which are so pure that one can see their own reflection, as if in a mirror. At its highest point, the water falls from a height of 20 metres, and from there it splits into numerous brooks and streams. This makes it the highest limestone cascade in the country.

In 1995, the Krushuna waterfalls were recognised as a protected natural wonder, in order to preserve this spectacular creation of nature. In the past, there was a large monastery in these lands, inhabited by Hesychast monks, yet all that is left today are the ruins of the monks' cells.
