Grottos in the national park. A shame that there are no guided tours in another language than Hungarian. Impressive halls in the mountain, but after a while a stalagtite is a stalagtite, whereever it is situated.

Outstanding programme on a rainy autumn day, worth to travel here. Different tours are available. Marvellous place, do not miss it!

We were late by 1 minute for the tour which meant we had to wait another hour for the next tour. It was a bit disappointing at first as the woman at the ticket office couldn't explain the reason behind it nor suggest what we could do meanwhile (because of the language barrier). Fortunately, we saw a hiking trail leading... More

Beautiful cave, great place for a trip. The basic tour in the cave takes one hour, during which one can see something like one kilometer of the total 27 kilometers of this cave system. The tour is easy, with well maintained pathways and electric lights, no ladders, just stairs, which makes it suitable even for young children (not for strollers).... More

The sounds and sights are truly stunning a pure slice of natural art. Go any time if the year and dress as if it were the fall season to take your time on the tours. I would suggest a hiking or sport shoe due to the dampness.

The caves themselves are amazing and if you're in this part of Hungary a visit is highly recommended. But they only have guiding in Hungarian so unfortunately we missed a lot of information. Based on the reactions of the Hungarian attendees the guide seemed good though. Getting there is easiest if you have a car. We didn't and ended up... More

The tour is ONLY in Hungarian, so why was this the best cave tour EVER? It was deep, it was long, it has interesting formations and even without understanding a word of the tour, it was great! The tour starts at the Aggtelek National Park Red Lake Visitor center and 2 hours later you exit at the Barlang exit to... More

Has anyone traveled from Budapest to Aggtelek national park as a day trip by public transport? Volanbusz does offer Aggtelek destination but there were too many stops with the same name. Which stop should I get off to get to the cave entrance for the Baradla tour? Will the same bus stop at this stop in the afternoon? (from the... More

The Baradla cave is situated in Aggtelek town just 1 hour drive from Miskolc. Beautiful scenery all along the roead to the National Park. We took the 1 hour lit walk cave tour, taking guests along walkways 1 km through the famous cave. At the beginning of the walkway you think its just a normal cave. But the deeper you... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the caves and they did not disappoint me. There are guided tours through the caves, of different lengths and with different itineraries. The one I joined was in Hungarian so I didn't really understand much of what the guide was saying, but it was a beautiful visit nonetheless. We visited the concert hall... More

Dear Nistrale, Thank you for your positive review of Aggtelek National Park! Unfortunately, we do not have any foreign language speaking guides, but I did translate all the cave tours into English leaflets to be handed to foreign visitors. Did you get an English language explaination from the guide or ticket office before your Baradla tour? Best, Dan Swartz Marketing... More
