Collection(s)It is a natural cave inhabited by humans, with the absolute altitude of 305 m, the relative one of 20 m and a total length of 1.000 m, having an entranceway 3.05 m high, 5 m wide and a corridor leading to a bridge over the lake, to a spherical space named "Globe". Discovered in 1903, G. Czaran published a guide of the cave. Researched also by Marton Roska between the two World Wars, and in 1952 by H. Kessler and by other researchers who, besides a rich troglobiont flora, mention a Tisa and Bronze Age Neolithic pottery. The materials are analogous to those in the Devent II, III caves nearby. The cave is open for visitors and closed by an iron gate. It is electrified and visited with a guide. The archaeological traces found here belong to the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
