Gaura cu Muscă cave

Situated close to the stone calked Stanca Bavacia, this cave reaches the length of 254 m. It was inhabited during the Hallstadt period and in the middle ages , nowadays, however there are certain parts of a fortress still visible in there. (15-19 century). About the "musca", it has its name there are different legends: he might have been born as a child of someone killed by Iovan Iorgovan, or according to another tale killed by Saint George, anyway, it is said he was born in a place with full of vipers and scorpions, and it might have been on a tree some place close to Golubac.

Experts say that these tales have nothing to do with the cave itself at all. Before the forming of the lake it has been enlarged by the river Danube, and the gallery which leads in is full with water nowadays, and ends in a siphon, and there we can get through the Hall of Liliecilor. This cave has numerous flowers and small instincts within and carved stones as well.
