On the way to Bachledova Valley, which is the destination of many tourists because of a walk in the treetops, there is a cave hidden in a hillside of the Belianske Tatras.

Belianska Cave is the only cave in the High Tatras accessible to tourists. After about 20 minutes of walking on a steep slope, there is an entry to the cave.

On August 7, 2019, 137 years will pass since it opened for tourists. There are lakes and rich calcite rocky formations, for example, in the shape of a crocodile or Jánošík.

Great acoustics

Visitors can enjoy great acoustics in the cave when watching a short audio-visual show accompanied by the typical Slovak fujara flute.

The cave is 3,829 metres long and the guided tour lasts about 70 minutes. Visitors will overcome 860 stairs on a 1,370-metre circuit. The temperature is about 5 Celsius degree the whole year.
