The Bacho Kiro cave (Bulgarian: пещера "Бачо Киро") is situated 5 kilometers west of the town Dryanovo, Bulgaria, only 300 meters away from the Dryanovo Monastery. It is embedded in the exquisit canyons of the Andaka and Dryanovo River. The first tourists entered the cave in 1938, two years before it was actually called the Bacho Kiro cave after the Bulgarian National Revival enlightener Bacho Kiro. The cave is a four-storey labyrinth of galleries and corridors with a total length of 3,600 metres, 700 metres of which are maintained for tourists' attraction.

English explorers found in this cave the remains of a massive bear. The bones are now kept in a museum in England. Though not at many stalegtites and stelegtites as in our caves, the caverns and passageways were massive and ideal for living in the times of the cavemen. It cost $2.00 per person to enter.
