The Polovragi Cave is located in the Căpăţânii Mountains. The entrance to it is on the eastern slope of the Olteţului Gorge. It is one of the longest caves in the country. The total length of its corridors exceeds 10.5 km, with a section of 800 m available for tourists.
The cave is relatively warm, the average temperature here is 9 C. It is also quite humid, and you can often see condensation on its walls. Depending on the composition of the rocks and soil, the water takes on different colors. There are numerous stalactites, stalagmites and other rock formations.
In the period from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, the cave served as a retreat for monks. As a remnant of their presence, you can see a rock painting made with the black smoke technique, showing the symbol of death.
There is a colony of horseshoe bats in the cave, numbering about 300 individuals. During their winter hibernation, the site is inaccessible to tourists.
