Of cave exploration

Do you want to see the real cave? Not to ride it by train, walk through fake lighted and plundered by human halls, but really make it there. Crawl, of course… We offer you to put on speleo equipment, helmet and headlight, to get dirty and dive 60 feet under the surface, in order to explore the biggest and most mysterious gypsum labyrinth in the world.

This is the only place in Europe where these kinds of tours are held – Optimistic cave. It is unique and exceptional. One of very few not fully explored places on the Earth. At the moment more than 255 kilometers are mapped, there fore in close future it can beat even the Flint-Ridge Mammoth cave system and become The World Longest Cave!
