Extensive limestone caves have been opened as a high-quality swim spa. Cheaper from September to April. Clear and detailed English (and Hungarian) price lists to the right of the entrance. You may pay by contactless or PIN bank card, or cash. Spotlessly clean water, park and facility building. Entry wristband allows you to lock and unlock a locker repeatedly during your stay. But lockers are scarce after lunch in high season.

High season - buy four-hour ticket for half a day, or take a picnic lunch if you buy all-day tickets, or get a latey ticket after 5 pm. There are clean free shaded picnic tables or you can stretch out on the lawns to dine, or visit the little cafes. Great for small families, with many little outdoor pools.
There's a large outdoor pool at 26C to 28C. Inside, there is the main cave network for swimming at 29C to 30C, and also separate 32C cave pools. And the spa is excellent even when crowded.

Low season - the four-hour ticket is only available at weekends. Outdoors, normally only the 28C heated 40m lane-swimming quadrant is open (only five hardy swimmers inc me), although the cave baths remain open throughout the year, except for the late January maintenance closure (when they do guided walks through the caverns behind the swimming caves). Bigger crowds at weekends, but very empty on weekdays in low season.

In 2018, a few more handrails and non-slip mats have been provided.

Excellent bus from Miskolc city centre takes 20 minutes (air-conditioned in summer). If the front of the bus says Barlangfurdo (Cave bath), then it goes there, even if the timetable says it stops short. Buy a carnet of 10 bus tickets to get a discount, and validate when boarding.

We visited mid afternoon on the final (Halloween) weekend of the school holiday so crowds were to be expected. You can park (for a fee) at the top of the road leading to the baths at the Hotel Kitty - there were people directing vehicles so it’s easy to find. We walked down from our hotel and plenty of people were taking the bus (2 minute walk to the bus stop). We bought a 4 hour pass but stayed a couple of hours. The outside pools were closed so we explored the cave baths and thermal pools. As others have written the cave baths are not particularly warm and they were crowded so we joined an informal wading tour of the baths until we found a free spot to stop for a while. There were so many families having (noisy) fun that it was not very relaxing so we headed back to our quieter hotel spa. Well worth visiting to see the beautiful caves and for the health benefits it just not that relaxing. On the way out there were tiny delicious doughnuts for the children and mulled wine for the adults.

To be honest it was a disappoitment for me, it looked much nicer on pictures than in reality. Overcrowded pools and dressing rooms, worn equipment, slippery floors, big noise, feeling of uncleaniness. Very interesting tough, but do not expect too much.

Cave Bath of Miskolctapolca is a bath located in a natural cave in Hungary. It is a very beautiful place, where you can swim, relax and discover some of different rooms. For me, the best room is one, where the roof change the color. It is a very nice experience if you like spas,

It was an interesting visit. We think it is a fine place to experience something unique. However, if you are intending to go to a place where you can relax in hot water and silence you should not go to this place. The water is only warm and there are young kids all over. The changing rooms are simple but functional. We did not try any food or drinks

A fain escape with friends for a day, where all enjoyed their good time regardless of their age.
Food court needs some better planning and real Hungarian spirit to complete the staying.

Great experience, except for the crowd. Too many folks were allowed in at the same time, cave was packed, kids screaming, the place echoed with noise. Otherwise I am glad I went, but suggest going at a different time with less folks.

I used to visit this place often during my childhood and returned once a year since. This summer's visit was a shock! Thermal water pools were cold!!! Signs labelled as 35°C... complete joke!
Staff (especially the pensioners) are rude, could not smile and get angry when you have a question to them. Also they don't speak any second language. I do understand and experience this screen in Hungary that the people are depressed and unhappy! But come on, they are paid to provide service for the visitors!
I watched a Slovakian family asking for a toilet at the upstairs changing room and the old women did not allow the Slovakian boy to use the upstairs toilet as he was wearing flip flops?! Of course she was unable to directly speak with them I was embarrassed to translate that the family needs to go downstairs as this woman not letting the boy use the toilet due to her flip flops! (Which was inside . Swimming ones)

Toilets were not clean.
Not suitable for disabled people. It's 2018 ffs! This needs sorted asap! How awful!

All Lifeguards on duty just playing on their phones...

The person cleaning up the outside pool areas and grass didn't wear a uniform. Picked all rubbish up with his hands. First i though it was a homeless person... that is just one thing you don't provide uniform bit at least have a standard or some kind of expectations...

So upset to see this (once) gorgeous place go downhill...

This place once was my favourite. Now i will go to Demjen or Egerszalok even though its 50 mins more journey.

I’m so sorry to say that .. but it was one of my biggest delusions so far .
I went here 10 years ago remembering of what a beautiful ,relaxing and mesmerizing experience was .
Yesterday i figured out that everything has changed ..
Organization at its worse ..( but you can find it out in other comments ), cold water , infinite lines for food are nothing compared to the noise that you have to face .

It’ s quite incredible that you travel kilometers to relax .. and then you leave more stressed than before .
I didn’ remembered that this place was an aquapark for 4 years old childs , but for sure was my mistake to not figure it out before on the web site ..

I had neither one minute left for just standing and enjoying , as there was not even an angle where there was no kid splashing and screaming with their parents enjoying them but making videos of them not only in the cave , but even in the sauna world (which i paid extra cash , for two finn sauna btw ) ..

Just try to figure out screams and splash in a cave .. like 100 times louder ..
Absurd .

I’m just saying , we already know that the new generation of parents is lobotomized so i’m not going to complain about people behaviour with their childred..

but for gods sake .. there is TWO pools for kids ( empty ) , what about make people use them ?
If you know that people are here for enjoying the place , write some advise at list to make silence in the Cave ... or may put some lifeguard to at list try to ..

Otherwise , call the place “Babycave adventure” or something like that .

So in conclusion , i see a lot of complains about the place and i hope with all my heart that one day something changes , because it was one of an experience times ago .

But by far i’ ll never come back after this ..
