What To Expect
Hungary's capital, Budapest, is famous for its hot springs all over the world. Many people visit Hungary's famous thermal baths, but only a few know that the hot water rushing up from deep underground created something else too. In the limestone mountains, under Budapest, the heated water formed a huge cave system, which is thought to be more than 100 km long. The spas and caves of Budapest are planned to be declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The longest cave of Budapest is the 20.1 km long Pál-völgyi-Mátyás-hegyi cave system located in the Duna-Ipoly National Park. It is a real multi-level labyrinth system with most of its chambers under the residential districts of Budapest.
If you aren't claustrophobic you can apply for our regularly scheduled cave tours which are guided by qualified caving guides. During the 2.5-3 hrs long tours you will often have to climb on walls and crawl through narrow passages so you have to be prepared for adventure.
The tours lead though natural parts of the cave, with the supervision of professional caving guides who are qualified members of the Hungarian caving association.
Though one has to crawl, climb, scramble or creep many times during the tour, no previous experience in caving is needed.
