It was found from teenagers 40 years ago and is open for the public since 10 years, this cave is 6 million years old.
The stalactites are really cool and the guide will give you a lot of information.
No pictures are allowed , at least at the beginning . Afterwards was not a problem ?!?
The guide could be a little more polite and division of the groups a little bit more organised instead of adding more people all the time.
The price is 6 euro per person, pretty normal I think.
We heard everything in Greek, I am not sure if there are other languages available as well.

A 6,000,000 years old cave reveals his secrets to us.
A nice visit for the entire family.
Cave it’s self is the newest in Greece since it started to be visited only in 2009.
It’s a small cave on the lake ring road very close to city center.
300 mtrs round it takes 15 minutes more or less.
Guide are really trained and you will enjoy the walk.
Try don’t follow big groups, as less person the better.
Ticket is only 6 euro.

This is a relatively small cave, but due to its more recent discovery, (just before WW2,) it has not been vandalised like other sites. The accessibility works followed all scientific restrictions for preserving it, so the visitor can enjoy original views in comfort. Admission cost is minimal, (€4.00 if I remember well.) The visit can be combined with the adjacent Church and a lunch in one of the picturesque taverns by the lake.

You would never think that You can find caves in such place, still very close to the town.
The caves are small, around 350 mt long, easy to visit also for children, well maintained and with english and greek speaker.
Must be seen if You are in the area.

Family run taverna, popular with Cretan families and visitors alike. Highlights: panoramic views, great BBQ grilled chops, and the totally addictive greek yoghurt, rose syrup and melon pudding.

You may even spot the Dragons (Mr and Mrs Drakou) hard at work in the restaurant, and the cave in the hillside above the taverna.

We read about this attraction and made it a high point of our visit in the historic part of Kastoria. The cave was an experience as speleologists have made it safe and accessible to the public. Inside the lighting enriches the experience of the incredible cascading stalactites and stalagmites with small ponds bringing color in the calcium palace. A guiding audio system guides and highlights in some parts of the cave. Only drawback was that quests have limited time as our exhalations and CO2 destroys the interior. So take some flashless photos fast

Enjoyed the caves and the rock formations.
Couldn't take pictures and had to be led around in groups all together.
Short trip with limited and un-enthusiastic explanations.
The caves of Dyros in the Peloponese are definitely a better overall experience.

These caves only opened to the public a few years ago and what a find they are! Very large (and I am told being paved for more public access) and impressive, quite stunning!
Entry is €6 for about a 30mins tour with a mandatory guide. The downside is that tours are only in Greek which would be disappointing for non-Greek speakers, hopefully this will be rectified as these caves become more popular,
