According to the legend, King Marko (Marko Krale) built a house for his sister Peshna at the entrance of the cave, and so it still carries her name today. On the entrance of the cave, a remnants of old building and water mill can be seen even today.
Peshna is a cave with the largest entrance in the Balkans with a height of about 40 meters, which allows the sun’s rays fill the interior walls, so the visitors can move freely through the interior. It is 56 meters wide and 124 meters long.
From the inner part during the winter springs water that completely dries in the summer.
How to reach Pesha Cave
Peshna cave is about 7.5 km away from Makedonski Brod city. After the exclusion from the regional road R1106, on the left you will see a path that you can use if you like walking up to the cave. The path is well arranged, it is about 900 meters in length and passes through the small monastery of St. Archangel Michael.
You can also use the other road by continuing with the car up to the houses and the restaurant “Dedo Ilija”, from where there is about 400 meters walk to the cave. The trails are well arranged, but inside the cave can be slippery so it is recommended to wear appropriate shoes.
