Take a private tour from Budapest to the unique 300-meter-long cave system of Tapolca, situated under the heart of the charming town near Lake Balaton. It was opened to the public in 1912 after ten years of its discovery. Small boats can be hired to explore the cave system. Merely 15–20 m below the town a 5 km long cave system criss-crosses the Miocene limestone layers. This includes the 3.3 km long cave lake, which is mostly filled with karst water. The cave was discovered in 1903 during well digging. After visiting the cave lake you will have time to stroll along the streets of Tapolca , have lunch by the lake and then discover the next settlement of Tihany with a beautiful view to Lake Balaton. On your way back to Budapest you will be able to enjoy the historic town of Szekesfehervar. In the evening returning back to Budapest to your hotel.
