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

We spent the weekend in the National Park & visited the Baradla Cave. There are tours everyday, at 10am, midday, 3pm and 5pm. You pay HUF2200 per adult and the tour last approximately 45mins-1hr. It is well worth it! The caves are humongous and you get to see all the main chambers. It is beautiful down there. It is chilly... More

Interesting natural space, with a little artificial interference. Inside the cave there's a big hall with perfect acoustic were it's possible to do concerts.

Dear Fabio, Thanks for your positive feedback about Aggtelek National Park! Just to answer your question about why some of the karst formations in the cave are black...it is because early explorers used burning torches for light. Also, the cave has been used for shelter for millenia, and camp fires also blackened some areas. But the blackened areas are really... More

We are from Slovenia where is carst home. The cave is nice, but all stalactites and stone are black in some way. Beside the caves and some nice forest walks there is nothing to do. It is hard even find nice restaurant in the area.

There are a number of separate caves in the Aggtelek and Slovak Karst region, but the most easily accessed on the Hungarian side is the Baradla cave. We stayed in Miskolc and the drive up on 26 and 27 through Edelény and Szendrö, then past Perkupa and west to Jósvafö and Aggtelek took about an hour. The road is narrow... More
