You start with a visit to Szemlő-hegyi Cave known as "the underground flower garden of Budapest", a tribute to the spectacular formations of pisolite and gypsum crystals. The mineral laden waters have created forms such as "popcorn", "pea stones" and "cauliflowers", with these covering the walls and made even more beautiful by the illuminations.
Because the caves enjoy a steady temperature of 12 degrees Celsius, with dust and allergen free air, along with 100% humidity, at its lowest level there is a respiratory sanatorium. From here you take a pleasant walk (about 1km) to the next site, Pál-völgyi Cave.
It's the longest cave system in Hungary at around 31 km and is known for its lofty passageways and great level differences. Thanks to the heated water flowing through the limestone hills, you'll find stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations, glittering calcite-crystals. The tour concludes with a peek at the quarry from one of the caves many hidden exits.
