  • just a 15 minute walk from a more important cave but this is also very nice and interesting. These two should make a nice little afternoon trip.  more »

  • Visiting with small kids is great since I the cave is easy to walk and the exhibition is exciting for a wide range of ages. But the guided tour was totally unfitting for small kids who aren't able to pay attention or stand idly for 10- 20 minutes. I'd say a info outside and then walking freely inside (within time and spatial boundaries) would make this a less stressful experience.
  • Good for small children. As caves go it's not too exciting with only 2 or 3 cave formations and it's just a 30 min tour. Good on a, rainy day with small children.
  • Entry fee is currently 1300ft for an adult. The cave has mostly been developed, so the walk is very easy and flat. You'll probably feel drops of water landing on your head from time to time. There are 'cauliflower' formations everywhere. Try to avoid entering with a large group of school kids.
  • Great guides. Well developed path ways and worth a visit for only 1300 entrance.
  • The cave is 2 km long itself but the tour shows only a small part. The tour guide was knowledgeable and able to present the cave in both Hungarian and English. There is a small interactive section at the entrance and a projection room suitable for children and adults alike. Throughout the year the cave holds events such as weddings, children's events and wall climbing.
