A short walk into an old mine. The temperature is about 10 degrees so bring something warm to dress (we were there in the summer). The tour takes about 40 minutes with a 5 minutes sailing. Explanations are given also in English.

It was a unique Alice-in-wonderland experience . You can never imagine that an underground lake like this exists

Amazing place below ground level. It was a mine and now turned into a tourist spot. Do carry warm clothes because when we went there the temperature inside was 9 Degrees Celsius. The boat ride is worth every penny.

If you have seen enough of churches and palaces and are looking for a different experience this is perfect! Do bring warm clothes or just rent a blanket from them.

I would definitely recommend this experience. I don't particularly like enclosed places and almost turned back when a lady in our group looked like she was claustrophobic and turned round and walked back to the entrance. Happy I kept on going. There is an escape...More
