About the Tour
Distance: 2 300 m
Duration: 100 minutes
The tour takes guests along the longest lit section of the Baradla Cave. The tour both departs and terminates at the Jósvafő Ticket Office, and takes approximately 100 minutes to traverse.
The majority of the route follows the stream bed of the Styx Creek, where, following heavy rainfall or snow melt, the really water rumbles along. The route winds through immensely colourful stalactite columns, flags and stalagmites until eventually one comes to Hungary’s tallest 19 m stalagmite called the “Observatory.” Other highlights include the Dragon’s Head and the cave’s largest chamber, The Hall of Giants where you will get a taste of the room’s fantastic acoustics.
