Captivated us surprisingly beautiful landscapes, reflective mood. In my imagination I saw pictures, cute, mysterious Chamber. I had the impression that the fairy declares the spell and time has stopped and the world turned into rock sand color in various shades. Beautiful rooms and columns supporting the ceilings from which hung hundreds of thousands of needle rollers of different sizes mieniły to different colors. I saw images of people, animals, trees stopped in the place turned into boulders. Highlighted the Chamber gave an amazing, mysterious image frozen world shaped by stalactites, stalagmites. And these small lakes in the caves, where under the influence of light water glinted in the dark, heaved, changed color, ożywała among the stone. At the end of the tour, on the shore of one of the underground lakes, we listened to a concert of classical music performed by musicians floating on boats. Something beautiful. Accompanied by us amazing experiences. Admiration and awe over nature. Photos, although beautiful, does not reflect what our eyes have seen. Elizabeth Sshow original
Fascinating. Beautiful. Haunting and absolutely beguiling that nature can create something so wonderful. Loved every minute of wandering around. Wanted to go again
Actual cave was really cool however the overall impression isn't great. There is a setup where visitors are let in to the cave only every hour on the hour which means it is so crowded going in. The walk down the cave is amazing thou, the stone formations and pools of water are super cool - if only it wasnt so crowded. The total anti climax starts when you reach a large opening in the cave with seats where a music concert will take place. This has so much potental but it is just slow, drawn out and leaves you and especially kids so bored.
The caves were much more impressive then I initially thought, it was very pretty and quite spectacular, some of it looked like it could have easily been sculptured, it was actually very enchanting. The boats and lighting was quite beautiful, but I wasn't a fan of the theatrical orchestra, that being the violins or piano. The wait for the boat ride was tedious, as it is only a short distance of 80 meters before your disembarking. The only negative point I could make, is the crowds of people upon entry, it was too crammed and could be quite uncomfortable for someone with fears of crowded places or claustrophobia sufferers. Overall a good experience
Wonderful and beautiful caves. Let down by having far too many people trying to navigate the same space and poor musical section. The music was good but just watching a boat with lights is a little boring. With the amount of money they must make in a day they would easily be able to add a light show to compliment the music. Would still recommend.
We'll worthwhile visit. We spent two hours here . The caves are alone are worth the €15 admission fee however the real treasure beautiful lake show highlight. We found All the staff most helpful & polite .
