Lake Cave, Tapolca

#3 of 9 in Parks in Central Transdanubia
Cave Water Body
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.

The cave itself, and the presentation is very nice, and well constructed. Since many of us were, and crowding in the groups, so that the boat had to wait, not too little.

  • Wonderful place! Emerald water, very romantic to go boating on an underground lake). The cave is beautiful! Nuance-before boating excursion to the Hungarian Museum, nothing is clear), I wanted to go straight into the cave. would prefer to do without this excursion. When navigating in the cave is sometimes really narrow, but for me-it even adds excitement. feel like in the fairy tale "the seven underground kings"! For children the impression was complete, worth reading this tale before the trip)
