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.

Awesome experience. Our guide (I forget her name) was great. We did the adventure caving option - expect some tight squeezes! Not for the claustrophobic but otherwise a really good option just outside of the city. The cave is about 50F, but you get pretty...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.

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.
