  • Wonder of nature. Well worth a visit. I think he advertised enough. Alanya Stalactite cave formations much larger than and as rich. Those who plan a trip to the Eastern black sea may add to. İcerisinde the wood stairs and bridges, old people and the difficulty of access for disabled people. Entry fee.

  • One of the great tourist attractions in the province of Gumushane de Kar cave. It can be exhausting, but a walk out of the cave entrance in what you see when you enter you will fatigue after. Gümüşhaneye you need to go on your definitely suffered.
