Pestera Ponicova (Ponicova Cave) is an extraordinary and very popular through cave. It is entered from a valley which runs parallel to the Danube to the south-west from the village Decebal. A parking lot marks the cave entrance. From here visitors walk and climb through this nice horizontal cave with numerous speleothems until they reach the other end, right in the cliff face above one of the most dramatic gorges of the Danube called Iron Door. On the other side of the river lies Serbia.
