The longest cave in the Sudetes and one of the deepest in Poland. The entrance is located at the height of 800 m above sea level. The total length of the cave is about 3.5 km and it has 3 levels. For tourists corridors in the central part have been made available with the lenght of about 700 m. The Bear's Cave is famous for its beautiful forms of infiltration, we can see here min: stalactites, pasta, drapes and curtains, custard, ribs and infiltration: cascades, stalagmites, helictites, rice fields, woolly infiltrates, necrotic bowls, stalagmites, pisolites, mushroom formations, crystalline calcite concentration. Inherent in the caves is also the fauna. In addition to the remains of the once living animals such as cave bears (hence the name of the cave), there are also animals that inhabit the cave today such as bats and invertebrates like Niphargus aquilex and spiders. The temperature inside is about 6°C, therefore when choosing to take a trip to the cave you should bring warm clothes. The track is lit. It takes about 40 minutes.
