The Bears cave from Chiscau Romania


The cave system was first discovered in 1975 when exploratory mining blasting revealed the caverns. They were then explored by a group of scientists known as Speodava who found a massive amount of bones that once belonged to ancient, extinct cave bears that hadn't walked the Earth for over 27, 000 years.

By 1980, the Bears' Cave was opened to the public, quickly becoming the most popular attraction in the area. The cave offers four galleries to explore including the Scientific Gallery and the Candles Gallery. The Bones Gallery may be the most impressive and iconic of the four however, as this cavern contains a walk way that circle the full skeleton of a cave bear that is still embedded in the stone floor.
