The Meziad Cave was explored, opened and mapped for the first time by Gyula Czaran (1847-1906) who joined his name to the mountain tourism of Bihor Montains. So at the beginning of the XX century it was numbered between the biggest caves of Europe.

In 1921 a caver team leaded by Emil Racovita the founded new galleries achieved over 35 km. Today the cave is of 4 774 m. It was between the first up built caves of the country.

In the galleries were formed fossil remains of ursus spelaens. The lime-stone formations the stalactits and stalagmits let us fly to a fairy world.
