One of the natural wonders in Apuseni, I am glad we’ve visited it. The entrance is 13 lei, a fair price for all the lights inside, stairs that keep you safe all the way. Also in this price you get a guide.

The caves open at 10.00. The guide will take you through the various caverns which are very interesting. Because the bats are a protected species you cannot go to their nesting grounds but if you are lucky and if you keep your eyes open you...More
