Lake Cave, Tapolca
(3.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Embark on a boat trip beneath the city streets at Lake Cave. Accidentally discovered over 100 years ago, the cave has since become one of Tapolca's main attractions. The underground system is nearly 300 m (900 ft) long and more than two-thirds of it is covered with water. Lights illuminate the interior, so you can get a view of rock formations and the water. The admission fee includes boat fare; visitors under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult. The temperature inside the cave is a constant 20 C (68 F), so be sure that you're dressed appropriately. The humidity and high calcium content are thought to be beneficial for those who suffer from respiratory conditions. With our international travel planner, Tapolca attractions like Lake Cave can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This route is worth it but only if you buy tickets online, this will skip the infinite queue at the entrance. It must be said that before doing the canoe ride in the cave (alas short, 10 minutes) there is an explanation of the geological formations of the Lake Balaton and its surroundings. The guide that explains it does only in Hungarian and captions under the photos and movies which give pure 3D glasses to see them are in English. After 40 minutes of boredom practically there is the descent to the cave and the adventure alone in a canoe, funny and original. Sin note is short.

  • Forget the Museum the only interesting is the boat ride in the karst cave under the city! Each Gets a small aluminum boat, with which he can drive through a circular loop. Gorgeous water, nice ambience and I recommend even stop, let pass people or to RAM other boats. A fun experience, especially in the middle of summer!
