Collection(s)The Meziad cave is a nature reserve and monument - According to Law 5/2000 on the approval of the National Territory Planning Plan, Section III - Protected Areas, with an area of 0.10 ha. Also, Meziad Cave is a part of the Nature 2000 site of the Crişul Repede-Pădurea Craiului Gorge. The custody of this site and implicitly the Meziad Cave is owned by Bihor's Center for Protected Areas and Sustainable Development. It is a huge natural cave inhabited by humans, with a semicircular entranceway 16 m high, 10 m wide, the absolute altitude of 397 m and with other two smaller entranceways. The total length is 4,750 m. It is two-storied, mostly fossil, on a small active part. The present and fossil fauna (Ursus spelaeus), Homo sapiens remains (probably from the Palaeolithic and Neolithic) are important for the speleogenesis and the carstic evolution.
