    Yagodina's claim to fame is its cave system. As well as the actual caves, there is also a prehistoric cave dwelling, which dates to c. 4000 BC. The cave was home to master potters, who were able to produce smooth circular pots without the use of a wheel. Inside the cave you can see the location of fireplaces and kilns (there is also a reconstruction of a kiln), pottery from the site, millstones, loom-weights, spindles, animal and human bones and the tooth of a cave bear.

    Outside the caves are a few souvenir stalls selling mainly agate jewellery, and local jam and honey. There was also a small zip-wire to cross the river to the cafe

    The Yagodina village festival takes place in early-mid-September, when the locals wear their traditional costume and sing and dance.

    Sadly, we missed the actual festival, as we returned home the day before. We were however fortunate to be allowed to watch the rehearsals, which took place in the village library.
