Romania has 12,000 discovered caves and scientists are sure there are many more that are left to discover. The good news is that many caves are open to the public and they are perfectly safe to wonder in. Caves open to the public usually have stairs, built pavements and fences to protect people from slipping or falling. So they are perfect to visit with your family and of course they are children friendly.

1. Bears’ cave

  • In the Western Apuseni mountains, Bihor county.
  • Attractions nearby- Oradea city, Felix spa town with healing spring waters.
