The Village of Yagodina is located in the Western Rhodopes, near the Bulgarian-Greek border. The road to Yagodina passes through the incredibly beautiful Buynovo gorge, rising up from the both sides the Buynovo river.

The village was established in the XV century, during the Ottoman rule, back then called Balaban and Balabanlar.

The region is popular with the speleologists, cave explorers and tourists because of the many attractions, trails and caves, most of which are not open to public. A point of interest is the Yagodinska cave, an all-season attraction, visited by many Bulgarian and foreign tourists. The newest attraction in the area is the panoramic platform “The Eagle’s Eye" at the Saint Iliya Peak – altitude 1563 m above sea level.
