Are you ready to see the longest underground river in Europe? An Erasmus student certainly can’t miss this experience! The rocky landscapes of approx 2.5 km length will leave you speechless. It maintains the temperature of + 20ºC and is considered the longest navigable underground river in Europe. The Caves, which sometimes are called “the heart of the earth” are full of stalactites and stalagmites, also some cave drawings that you can enjoy during the boat ride. After some reconstructions and light installation in 1920’s the route became safe to visit for tourists. A unique place to visit for sure!
