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.

  • There are no words to describe all the emotions that I felt having been in the cave. It is worth just a visit! Entrance costs 500 rub. Take the train (as the subway) deep into the mountain. And you will immediately find yourself at the entrance, and in 5 seconds already in the cave. I read that it is cold there that it is necessary to dress warmer. I won't say it was cold in my cave.

  • Before visiting caves waited 2 hours beginning of excursion, there were 100 people simultaneously with one guide. We travelled by train 4 minutes, then walked 1.5 km on foot and inspected 6 halls. The tour takes 1.5 hours. Definitely worth to go, very beautiful, large halls, two underground lakes, stalactites. I liked it!
