If you turn right – you’ll come to the lakes!

Spirit of the Cave will accompany you,

Protecting the beauties of the underground world.”

  1. Absolutely fascinating,
    but I don’t think you will find me down there.

    ( The pyramides of Giza was claustrofobic enough for me.. )

    • Underground in most of the world is around 60°F year round. This is used for geothermal heating and cooling; tunnels are dug and the air circulated to buildings. There is so much contact with cold dirt that hot air cools down constantly.

  2. Wow, I´m reading the “Heart of Parma” (by A.Ivanov) now, which bI think it´s one of the greatest modern historical novels and the heroes in the book visit this Kungur cave…
    The story is about the submission of the peoples of the notheren civilizationes to the principality of Moscow in the 16th century.

    • I’ve been looking for an English translation of that novel, but so far I haven’t found one. I have some old textbooks that discuss the Russian exploration of the East, but I’d like to read Ivanov’s novel, too. Ivanov seems like an interesting guy.

  3. Why is that cross in the caves, did someone die or are the christians trying to mark their territory, just like a dog does when it pees on everything and anything it comes into contact with?
