Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is famous for its hot springs all over the world. Many people visit Hungary’s famous thermal baths, but only a few know that the hot water rushing up from deep underground created something else too. In the limestone mountains, under Budapest, the heated water formed a huge cave system, which is thought to be more than 100 km long. The spas and caves of Budapest are planned to be declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The longest cave of Hungary is the more than 30 km (20 miles) long Pál-völgyi-cave system located in the Duna-Ipoly National Park. It is a real multi-level labyrinth system with most of its chambers under the residental districts of Budapest. If you aren’t claustrophobic you can apply for our regularly scheduled cave tours which are guided by qualified caving guides. During the 2.5-3 hrs long tours you will often have to climb on walls and crawl through narrow passages so you have to be prepared for adventure. You will be supplied with overalls, helmets, and lights. You don’t need to have any previous experience in caving.

Very quaint chapel carved in the rock. A tangle of tunnels lead from one little chapel or shrine to anoher.

If you like doing something different, then I highly recommend adventure caving. Being at the upper end of the age limit, I was apprehensive at first and although I found some of the climbing a challenge, the guide was very reassuring and helped those of...More

Adventure caving is a must if you are visiting Budapest. I highly recommend it. There is a bus which stops near the place, the staff is friendly, and it is not expensive. They recommend long sleeves but I went this summer and shorts with t-shirt...More

Not really. There is a lot of crawling about, lying on your front and pulling yourself forward so you might hurt your feet. I don't think you would be permitted to wear them either. A regular pair of trainers would be best.

We went in the afternoon in March. You wear overalls and engage in a fair bit of physical exertion so whether you go morning or afternoon you will get a bit hot. In December it will be super cold so I imagine it won't be a... More

Not really. You have stairs. Some of them are quite tights and not fitted for a larger person but nothing too claustrophobic. I am one myself.
