The Roman water catchment and deep cave near Musina village are the newest touristic attraction in Veliko Tarnovo region
New signs for the Roman water catchment and the Musinska Cave were placed a few days ago on the road between Veliko Tarnovo and Pavlikeni. This is a way to make the sites popular among the tourists.
The impressive construction of the aqueduct was probably built at the beginning of the 2nd century AD and the water pipe to Nicopolis ad Istrum leaves. The facility has long been known for science, but excavation has not yet been done. The catchment itself is located within the village limits, in front of the entrance to the Musinska Cave, from which one of the cleanest and lightest waters in the Pavlikeni area flows. The capture, which is about 1900 years old, still works, and it flows clear and strong water.
