      Protected areas and biodiversity - in the picturesque valley of the Cherni Lom River, 35 km far from Ruse there is a cave called Orlova Chuka. It was formed a long time ago when the valley was at the cave's level. It was discovered in 1941 and has been partially researched, as the mapped parts till now are about 13.5 km long.

      According to the reports of some speleological associations, Orlova Chuka is one of the largest and most beautiful caves in Bulgaria.

      The cave is inhabited by numerous colonies of 8 kinds of bats during the whole year. For all of them the cave is a vitally important place during the winter, and for 5 species it is a "native home”. Orlova Chuka cave is the most important shelter for cave dwelling bat species in the Northeastern Bulgaria and with European importance for preservation of the bats in general.

      Dve Mogili Municipality is a partner in a project “The wonderful world of the Orlova Chuka cave” prepared by Ruse District Administration. This project requires financing from the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works for restoring the function of the cave. In 1965 the cave became a national reserve.

      Located on the territory of Dve Mogili Municipality, Orlova Chuka gives a chance for further progress of the region. There is a tourist chalet with 13 beds and excellent conditions in the region.

      The Orlova Chuka cave’s archeological area is a part of the national ecotourism strategy. It is also a part of the regional ecotourism plan. Ecoregion - 12 wet zones along the Danube River definite by the Asociation of the Danube municipalities and a part of the main strategic point for development of ecotourism in the Ruse area. As a natural sight Orlova Chuka Cave is declared with an adjoining area of 80 hectares and it is included in the ecotourism hiking route which connects the medieval fortress Cherven and the cave.

      Orlova Chuka Cave has to be embedded as a key to the future development of the ecotourism in the area, which will give possibilities both to the Municipality and the private entrepreneurs to invest in the ecotourism infrastructure, organic farming and construction of facilities for the harmful effect of the waste on the environment.

      Ayazmoto Forest Park is situated in the village of Karan Varbovka on 3483 decares of forested area.

      St Marina’s Monastery is built among a beautiful valley which has been inhabited since ancient times. It is surrounded by wooded hills of oak, beech, ash, pine, acacia and other kinds of trees.

      In the beautiful surroundings of the village there is a place called Bobov Dol where an age-old tree and an old well are found. The tree was declared a protected object. It is a Sessile Oak, about 25 m tall, and the perimeter of its stem is 4.16 m.

      There are dozens of age-old oaks, hornbeams and pears in the neighbouring locality - Dyal Sarash. Water abundance is probably the reason for the huge size of the trees in these areas.

      All of this will help to develop the ecotourism and also to increase the incomes by developing an alternative tourism and family business related to the production of goods and services for the tourist sector.
