New Athos Cave was known for many years simply as "bottomless pit." At approximately 1,000,000 cubic m (35,314,667 cubic ft), this cave system is a must for professional and amateur speleologists alike. The caves are made up of nine enormous chambers, each containing geological features including underground rivers and lakes, large stalactites and stalagmites, seemingly bottomless ravines, waterfalls, and oddly shaped deposits. For the protection and preservation of the cave, you'll use a railway that takes you to three stops, where you can get out and travel along walkways to take in the sights. Wear shoes with a good grip and a jacket, as it can be cold in the caves. By using our New Athos day trip website , you can arrange your visit to New Athos Cave and other attractions in New Athos.

  • were this year on excursions to the New Athos caves, be sure to bring something warmer, inside cool, with ceiling dripping, covering under foot wet, no one can like, but once you can see. At the entrance you have to pay 50 p. for shooting in the caves, we paid, but the people took pictures as much as you want and do not pay, no one checks it....

  • It was the first time I've been in such big caves. very exciting, emotions beat over the edge. The film The Lord of the Rings reminded us a little of it when the frat ring was making its way through Moria. Thought here goblins crawl out))
