The cave was discovered at 17 September, 1975 during an exploding of the Chiscau marble exploitation creating a hole, on which entered in the cave the first man.

The rift was covered then after the exploration of the cave-system a part of it was electrified and the official opening of the cave was at 14 July 1980. It gained the admiration of the people not due to its length but due to the density of its formations. It is 1.5 km long 521 meter of it serving for scientific research and it can't be visited.
