  • Very beautiful, interesting and absolutely safe Cave Tour! You will be guided by unique and different from each other grottoes, lit corridors, underground lake shore. Make sure you take a warm jacket and Cap. The temperature in the cave just above zero.

  • Everyone who came to Perm, I advise you to get out of the 91 km and visit the Kungurskye cave. Was there on a business trip in January 2014 onwards. Sorry no hit on the Epiphany, the day before our arrival was the celebration of the baptism of RUS ' in these caves. In the cave we were accompanied by an experienced guide.

  • I really enjoyed the tour-guide clearly loves his work, conducted with the soul. It was very interesting to see the cave-expected course, more ice, stalactites and stalagmites, but it was only at the very beginning, where stood the subzero temperature, and then the ice wasn't-were just different caves, underground lakes (maybe it was because the street stood the heat for 30). In fact, a very beautiful, but not very much, that was multicolored highlighting. It is clear that this is targeted primarily to children did not miss (a tour lasts about an hour, and already in the middle of the kids started whining that when already up), but I would have preferred a more "natural" illumination. Thank God I read the reviews, and despite the heat of July and on the street, has taken a very warm socks, boots, insulated winter jacket and scarf-I was very comfortable in a cave while many order barn. Still liked the selection of souvenirs and decorations in tents near the cave. In General, I would gladly again there visited.
