History


Description

While officially listed as a show cave, Peştera Liliecilor is actually a show cave Romanian style. In other words, its a huge passage with level floor and trails left by former visitors. No lights, no guides, no open hours, and no fee. In other countries this would be called a wild or semi-wild cave. We listed about a dozen of those caves, especially those with many visitors, as they were de-facto show caves. While most of them actually became show caves during the last 20 years (with financial support from the EU), this one is still in a semi-wild stated.
