This was a very pleasant visit on a combined ticket with the Mushroom Museum 300 metres away. The carvings are really beautiful. We took our time and were in around half an hour. If you have older kids, they are given a wee block of the soft stone at the end and some tools to have a go at carving themselves, which was a nice touch.

great experience with loads of information in English as well - we bought our ticket when we visited the mushroom caves nextdoor.
The young girl in the ticket office was very helpful and interested in where we were from.

The person carved local stones and recreated local architectural beauties. I really enjoyed the lighting provided to the works. It gives life and a special mood to these beauties. Amazing really!
