    The cave has its name because of two circular holes in the ceiling. When the first humans protected themselves from the bitter cold, the holes were probably mainly smoke exhaust. In the back of the cave, archaeologists found a small stone wall, probably with animal skins separated a room that could be kept even better. They also found remnants of tools, spearheads and hearths, as well as drop-shaped ivory and human bone beads with notches, as they arise when you scrape off the raw meat - probably traces of a burial ritual.

    The glasses cave owes its name to two round or oval openings in its ceiling. The cave cannot be entered as an archaeological site and the entrance is blocked by a grille.

    Exploring caves with children is always great. Unfortunately, a door to the cave blocks the entrance. Thus, this cave is only partially recommended.

    Great atmosphere, despite the fact that a grid is in front of it.

    small cave, which unfortunately cannot be entered at the moment. If you like walking stairs, you can walk up the stairs.
