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.

Not too difficult to find, everyone was around the same experience level (low) and we all had an amazing time.

Bus not that frequent so allow time. There are lockers to put your things. It is cold down there but light clothes only as you are doing exercise.

Take a guided tour of the extensive network of caves under the Buda hills. You will not be disappointed by this 'cool' place to visit, especially when the temperature above ground gets too much.

We went in the afternoon in March. You wear overalls and engage in a fair bit of physical exertion so whether you go morning or afternoon you will get a bit hot. In December it will be super cold so I imagine it won't be a... More

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.
