  • My dream finally came true. I did it!!!! Impressive place to visit. Be ready to walk fast and far. The guide rushed us up. Wish to have at list 45 min. inside the cave instead of 30min. The visitors centre has an exhibition upstairs with interesting and educational staff about the cave. Highly recommend!!!
  • Good place to visit, but not the best cave out there so set your expectations properly. Well organized and developed inside. Takes about one hour and half including everything from arrival, short train ride to the cave, walk around the cave, return train ride, and departure. There's guide in the cave.
