  • We went with a guide local and us taught this cave that had inside a species of current of water of which some drank. Out of the site had some positions where the ladies local sold fruits and sweet made by them of the area. That's great

  • As caves go, despite being one of the largest, it's quite small, so you wouldn't want to go if lots of people are there; we were just out of season (peak season is apparently May to September) and we'...  more »

  • Very tiny cave, where you won't spend more than 5 minutes. It's ok, as a starting point to Turaida Castle. Around you can find WC, and a small market to buy souvenirs.
  • Who would have guessed that 16th century could be so interesting?
  • This "cave" is a joke really, just look at the photos. Totally unspectacular. Don't worth changing your route for it.
  • You can drink the water from here as it is a rainwater filtered by meters and meters of "sand-rock". Looks more impressive at night if you use flashlight
  • Nice "cave " biggest around , worth to see , 1,5€ for parking
