Bears' Cave (Pestera Ursilor) – The Most Beautiful Cave Tourists Can Visit In Romania

The Apuseni mountains are home to Romania’s most beautiful cave. The Bears’ Cave (Pestera Ursilor) is the most spectacular cave tourists can visit, due both to the sheer number of stalagmites and stalactites and to their forms.

In 1983 a blast during quarry works in the limestone mountain gave us access to a ‘lost world’. Quarry workers discovered a grim testimony about nature’s ways of evolution: the skeletons of over 140 cave bears stood proof that life once was blooming in the cave, presumably until a part of the mountain collapsed to cut any communication with the outside.

All this time the only thing that entered the cave to disturb the huge bears tomb was water, which formed calcium candles to go with the mood. Stalactites have been measured to grow at around 1.3 cm per century !!!

I’ll let the pictures talk for the beauty of this place:

I needed to include some text to break the streak of photos. So, consider this text the delimiter between “anybody’s photos” and the good shots :

I will not insult you by copying here all the factual information you can find yourself on Wikipedia (Romanian) or in their link pages.
However, if you feel you need some specific travel information please feel free to ask. I found the drive there very easy, with no difficult “which in heaven’s name is the right way from here??” decisions to make. The maps you can find in the region will easily point you there, as also the MOL Atlas.
