It s the biggest ice-cave of Romania. It is at 1165 meter height and it is more that 3000 years old. It has a length of 720 meter and a depth of 105 meter. The volume of the ice we find in the cave is of 75 000 m3 and its width of 15 meter.

At its entrance there is a 48 meter deep shaft having a diameter of 60 meter. Actually the cave s entrance is at the bottom of the shaft, the Church is there as well from where a duct of 68 meter takes us to the Big Reservation.

In the Cathedral as in the Small Reservation there is no ice but here is for instance the Palace of Sanziana what reach of formation is. The Small reservation is actually at the bottom of a 15 meter high pig.

To the big reservation takes an ice-dip of 20 meter and in its continuance a duct. The duct is hardly descends as it gets to the lowest point of the cave: 105 meter deep. This reach in formations, including also ice-feathers duct bears the name of Maxim Pop. Attention! To the cave-visiting definitely take warm clothes.
