Jósvafõ Cave



 

Hidden among the Aggtelek-karst hills, the village owes its celebrity to the presence of an extensive cave system. In 1995, UNESCO placed this cave system, which also extends into Slovakia, onto its World Heritage List. Of the more than 1000 caves in this karst-area, four – the Baradla, Béke, Vass Imre and the Rákóczi caves - are open to the public throughout the year.

The first of these, the Baradla Cave, is pre-eminent in Hungary from a speleological viewpoint. With such a diversity of caves available, visitors can select tours of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty.

While in the village, it is also worth visiting the Calvinist church, the western portion of which dates from the Middle Ages. Its nave has a painted wooden-coffered ceiling. A baroque campanile stands adjacent to the church. Strolling among the restored, traditional cottages of this small village, it is worth visiting the House of Regional Folk Art, which affords a glimpse into its past, and of the peasant lifestyle.
