Dâmbovicioara Cave

under testing

  To visit Dâmbovicioara Cave, we leave the main road for a small incursione into the narrow and winding mountain roads passing through the village of Sirnea. The oldest known description of the caves was made by Joanne Fridvaldszky, a Jesuit scholar who lived in Cluj, he writes a book in 1767 titled „Minero-Logia Magni Principatus Transilvaniae”.

  Around 1955, a group of speleologists from Brasov cleared the entrance into the cave. During these excavation they found bones of Ursus spelaeus, an extinct species of cave bear that lived in Europe and Asia around 26.000 B.C.
