History

 
1975dicovered by digging a well..

Description

The cave is a very recent find, discovered when the owner of the land and the house above was digging a well. He realized the value of the cave and opened it for tourists. The well was dug only a few meters away.

This cave is a single huge cavern, filled with speleothems. The cave is very close to the surface, at some places there is only one metre of limestone to the surface. The roots of plants are hanging from the ceiling.
