This is a walk-in cave, lovingly cared for by the owners/managers. It is very compact, but it has everything! Beautiful formations - columns, stalactites, stalagmites, pool, curtains, and other wonderful visions! Warm, comfortable, easy walking. No reason to visit a cold, dark, deep cavern while...More

The cave is relatively small but there's many details to see, beautiful iluminated and in detail described by the guide. However the entry fee is quite expensive for the limited time you can spend there.

This cave you must see. It's very beautiful and small. The girl who gave us a small tour is very friendly and enthousiastic. We were allowed to stay in the cave by our selves. It is nice and quiet in there.
