From 26 to 29 September 2019 Bulgaria hosted the most prestigious international forum in Europe, which is held annually in a country, chosen by the European Federation of Speleology.
Under the motto “90 years of organized speleology and 45 years of cave rescue in Bulgaria” the forum provided a wide variety of presentations, poster sessions, and symposia on topics related to cave exploration: expeditions, biospeleology, geology, geomorphology and geography of karst, conservation and rescue. Within the framework of the 13th EuroSpeleo Forum the traditional National Cave Forum in Bulgaria was held. After the 1st EuroSpeleo Show Cave Symposium in Austria in 2018, a 2nd symposium was held during the 13th EuroSpeleo Forum in Sofia, Bulgaria in partnership with the Bulgarian Tourist Union.
In the book you could find information about the short history of the last 90 years of organized speleology and 45 years of cave rescue in Bulgaria, as well as abstracts of the presentations from the forum.
