Very nice natural cave
Aug 2019
It is a very big natural cave, very very nice! Difficult to find, as the roads are not very well indicated. The visit is good but only in hungarian! there was no other possibility (nor English or any other language).

Stunning place, well worth a visit
Aug 2018 • Family
Most parts of the cave system can be visited and there are various routes that visitors can take. We booked for the "grand tour", a five-hour long hike. The group was about 40 people of all ages (I was worried because there was a two-year-old child, but, luckily, it caused no complications). We had a guide who was helpful, knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. He was also very experienced. Every time there was a question, he went into details, so we learnt a lot of extra info besides the general tour info. The cave itself is breathtaking at places, at other parts there is not much to see. The alterations to the cave were made carefully to make as little change in the original environment as possible. The spectacular areas are well lit, no artificial colours. The car park is huge.

beautiful cave system, bad international tourism
Apr 2019 • Family
The caves were a marvel! Getting there was a nightmare as the website contains outdated information and nobody speaks English. We eventually found the right place and began a tour which was conducted in Hungarian only. Luckily the caves themselves are so spectacular!

Literally a Gem in Hungary
Jul 2018 • Family
This UNESCO World Heritage Park was one of the most memorable places we visited in Hungary. We traveled from Mako,Hungary, where we had our accommodations, for 4-5 hours one way to see it, but I can say it was well worth it!!This cave system which is nestled between two countries namely, Hungary and Slovakia is extensive and only a small area is accessible to the public.
Be sure to bring a jacket and wear the right shoes, the temperature is about +10C/50F inside the caves.
Unfortunately, our limited time only allowed us the opportunity to do the shortest tour (60 minutes) from Baradla Cave Entrance. We were fortunate enough to have our English speaking guide Steve from Multigo Tours to translate, as the official tour guide of the National Park only spoke Hungarian.
Entering the cave one is transported into a different world which cannot be justified by any photo. The various stalactites and stalagmites form different sizes and shapes, viewed from caverns of different sizes. It is amazing how the Hungarians have been able to both preserve and share this site. One of the caverns have been used regularly for various functions such as weddings, the guide gave us a taste of how the acoustics played wonderfully as it echoed in the chamber, accompanied by reflections from the walls when various lights were used in succession.
We had wanted to get a souvenir from their official store but unfortunately it was closed during our visit. Well, at least we have our wonderful photos to show.

Link to Domica Cave Slovakia
May 2018 • Couples
We couldn't find the Domica Cave within Trip Advisor which is quite close to the Aggtlelek National Park but in Slovakia instead of Hungary. Our two couples visited the Domica Cave in May 18 and it was by far our best cave sightseeing tour in Slovakia. Highly recommend.

Magnificent view but difficult to understand
Jun 2018
This site is magnificent to see. The guide seemed to tell us a lot of information about the site (we could see his pointer located in all sorts of places). However, the guide only spoke Hungarian so we could not understand a word he was saying. We wish we could understand just some part of his information.

Great area for wildlife visits - especially butterflies.
Jun 2018 • Friends
The Aggtelek National Park is a stunning location for those who like unspoilt wildlife meadows, butterflies and bird life. There are also deep caves to visit and walks in river strewn gorges!

Rakoczi cave Bodvarako
Apr 2018 • Couples
I visited the Rakoczi cave in Bodvarako. I suggest you book appointment in advance as the number of people in a group is limited. We were lucky as we had no appointment and the tour guide also did the tour for only 2 people. But he mentioned that sometimes many people try to enter at the same time. You can take pictures without buying an extra photo ticket. There is a lake inside the cave, and the stones are very special, also what is interesting that this cave was a mine before so you can also see some parts of the mine. Be prepared that there are many steep stairs and ladders and if you are afraid of heights maybe better skip this. Wear boots or trainers and a jacket, it is cold 10 °C. To me this cave is the most special in the Aggelek National Park.

1 hour tour during off season
Oct 2017 • Couples
We took the 1 hour tour at 3pm. It was just us and another couple. Even though the tour is in Hungarian, the tour guide gave us some details in English.
The cave itself is so cool and not sure if this is typical or because it was only 4 people on the tour, the guide did a few musical/light performances in the Cave's concert hall. So cool! Even without the mini-performance, the cave was so stunning.
