Cristal clear water, beautiful environment, good choice for a short trip.

Fantansztikusan tiszta víz, és gyönyörű környezet, megéri ellátogatni.

Ancient volcanoes still heat the thermal waters which formed these underground caverns below the present city of Tapolca. First you will receive a guide led tour of the geologic history of the region with some jungle gym type experiences (crawling) for kids first and then end up in the underground caverns where you wait for about 10 minutes for your boat. YOU will have to paddle the boat. I took my 70 yr old mother and 10 yr old son, and some parts of the caverns are so low that you have to duck in the boat and propel yourself forward by pulling yourself along the cave roof with your hands. Not for the claustrophobic! I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did my son.

Before jumping into the boat there is a presentation and a very nice video explaining the formation of the cave. It's very interesting, however it's presented just in Hungarian. There are signs in English and German that explains the basics, but there is no subtitles on the video, which is a pity.
You row the boat, the trajectory is short but amazing!! Totally worth to check it. The price is fair and we've spent around 1,5 hours there.

Out of season there was no English guide option so we were told to take ourselves around.

The place is well signed with each display in English and going at your own pace means you can skip the bits you're already familiar with and spend more time on areas specific to region or new to you.

The boat ride around the cave is a pleasure to do... thro you may like to put a waterproof cover over camera (a sandwich bag works well too!)

Overall a very informative and easily accessed sight. Well worth a visit.

Do not miss the cave it is very beautiful and romantic. Visit the museum before the boat tour just make sure you bought the ticket before on time. The cave is very beautiful, the water is clear and pure.
The weather down is good, all year approx 20 °C, but you can use lockers for coats and bags next to the entrance.
