About The Cave Tour
Distance: 1 km (0.6 miles)
Duration: 1 hour
The Baradla Cave Short Tour is perhaps the most popular of the Aggtelek cave tours, taking guests on a 1 hour lit walk along walkways 1 km through this famous cave. Explore a subterranean world virtually unchanged since cavemen discovered it thousands of years ago. The black, sooty rocks are now all that preserves the memory of these ancestors. However, this is not why the cave is special. Rather, the large chambers and multitude of dripstone formations such as stalactites, stalagmites and stalagmite columns leading the way deep underground spark the imagination. Along the way, you will encounter stunning formations and impressive halls such as the Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, Santa Claus, the Tiger and the Columned Chamber. Come to one of the concerts in the Concert Hall, such as the Baradla Chamber Choir Festival, for an unforgettable experience and excellent acoustics.
