  • After a short walk (except during the winter, in snow) from the parking spots to the ticket booth, you need to buy tickets and wait there for the fixed schedule (see attached pics). Prices are 11 RON ...  more »
  • The cave is in a beautiful mountain environment itself is smallish but the phenomenon is very interesting. Unfortunately the lighting is awful, I recommend to bring a torch. On the bottom of the cave there is filth everywhere, this degrades the experience of visiting a place so deserves to be exploited in any other way.

  • In the cave of Scarisoara glacier covered is the second largest in Europe; the cave is small but the glacier is beautiful and very impressive. Go to Garda de Sus and from there follow the signs to the cave, the road is narrow but feasible even with the camper; There is parking near the cave, it costs 5 lei. The entrance fee is 11 lei (adults) and the visit takes about 45 minutes; the guide takes the group inside the cave, offers a brief explanation in Romanian and then tourists are free. You enter in groups ranging from a minimum of 15 people to a maximum of 100 (sometimes even more). Inside, the temperature is low then you need a jacket, also, to enter the cave to do many steps so wear sneakers. Only downside: the walkway you walk on is a mess, need maintenance!
