  • The cave is called Crystal because of sparkling gypsum crystals on its walls. Excursion route kilometers three temperature around 10 degrees, so need warm clothing. On the ceiling of grapes hanging bats. From the hands of the guide we managed to review the bat around.

  • Because there are not that much tourism is in Ukraine we could mother soul by these caves hiking. The caves are already worth a visit but the fact that you only by this ancient course runs makes this experience absolutely unique. Just make sure that you're a bit early, when we played the cave there was a larger group to wait. According to the guidelines you are allowed only if accompanied by a guide in the caves, but the combination of the few number of (English-language) tourists and the early time we could enjoy this very unique situation. In some places the passage is very low, especially for us Dutch people. With back problems is this cave not convenient to visit. People with claustrophobia, the better to cave.

  • Visit the cave included in "standard" day tour from Kamyanets ' (there has been a lot of different interesting things, including khotyn fortress-tour recommend). Before visiting the caves, in a café next to it, you can order lunch-90 minutes (average time) he will wait for you, it's convenient. Check for two-the first, second, drink-turned out to 160 grivnas. Again, not a bad idea is before excursion visiting the facilities. They're horrible. Money with sightseers go clearly not on them. Prior to the entrance of the cave leads quite tiring climb. The surroundings are somewhat similar to the Carpathians. Front entrance-ticket office. September 2016 visit-UAH 25. Allowed without guide-don't know. Inside the cool and damp. Write that 11 degrees. If to be exact, about 10. So look, dress. And shoes. But since tours all the time along the way have to go, bend, turn, to overcome ups and downs, squats-then you want-nehočeš′ and sogreeš′sâ. Flashlight very recommend. Yes, the cave of èlektificirovana, but the light bulbs missing not at all places. And Paul clay and often slippery from natural waters. There were even a couple of puddles. Plus, frequent tabs with the walls and ceiling. I personally, despite all his caution, three times met their head). Not so, but unpleasant. Pass from time to time by speleologists were all wearing helmets. Now about the lyrics. Beautiful cave. Despite the light bulb and a permanent human presence she smotrit′sâ wild. They say she was punched water ancient Silurian seas. And it's 420 million years ago! Here is along its bottom, we in the cave and go! And I'll tell you-there is such a feeling. Everywhere, on walls, ceiling-gypsum crystals. There it, like, three kinds. It's like a brown or gray frost. And it shines. And from this whimsical produces gypsum growths in all shapes. When I was under such proper "icicles"-it was really scary. About the most "famous" growths decals with the names of animals or even that they are there to remind us. Very beautiful, sometimes bleak, sometimes triumphantly. The ceiling that meter fifty-something rebounds on 3 up. And gypsum, gypsum, gypsum Crystal around. Nothing to do with the building of appearance, by the way. And more. The cave is very interesting, but after an hour and a half is already so eager to get out into the fresh air, the Sun. And when you leave, here's this contrast, he, too, as part of the tour. Such a successful final chord. A particularly hot summer. And at the bottom are selling souvenirs. And crystals of gypsum from the cave too. Inexpensive. From 10 to 30 UAH. I bought a couple of Russians.
