The Bucegi Mountain is made up of an exceptionally large variety of rock formations that you can enjoy. Ialomita cave (Peștera Ialomiței) is one of them. It is located in the heart of the Bucegi mountain, the municipality of Moroeni, Romania, about 30 km from the town of Sinaia.

The Bucegi Mountain is made up of an exceptionally large variety of rock formations that you can enjoy. Ialomita cave (Peștera Ialomiței) is one of them. It is located in the heart of the Bucegi mountain, the municipality of Moroeni, Romania, about 30 km from the town of Sinaia.

How do we get there? To get to it we used Google Maps (the exact location you can see on the map below). Traveling from Sinaia, passing through different beauties and stopping a lot of times to admire the breathtaking views, we finally reached a large camping lawn. We had to park here, because there was a barrier and no vehicles were allowed to move on. There were a lot of stalls, on which were offered fresh berries in beautiful, handmade baskets and various souvenirs. Offered also food or something to drink.

From here we walked around 10-15 minutes to the cave through the National Park of the Horobeus Valley (Valea Horoabei). A beautiful and enchanting place.

To enter the cave, you must first pass through the monastery of Ialomicioara and the church "St. Apostles Peter and Paul ", built in the middle of the 16th century. He has been burnt and rebuilt at least a few times.

The cave has a length of 1128 meters, of which for now 450 meters are accessible to visitors. The temperature in it varies from 5 to 6 degrees, and the humidity is between 85-100%. On entry necessarily take a disposable hat and put on a helmet, because in the cave is quite wet, dripping water everywhere, and in places there are lower tunnels, for which it is good to wear a helmet. The cave tour can last about an hour. The interesting thing we saw inside is a waterfall whose water has been scientifically proven to be incredibly clean of bacteria and nitrates. At the end of the cave you can see the place from which its water springs.

Shortly after the waterfall, as you walk the narrow tunnels, you will find yourself in a huge hall called "The bear hall". It is huge hall and there once was found a skeleton of an extinct cave bear. Her skull is exposed and can be viewed by visitors.

Trying to research a little more additional information about the Ialomita cave, I have the impression that it is not among the famous places to visit. But if you are in the area, the cave must be on the list of places to visit.

During our visit to Romania, the locals had recommended that we go to lake Vidraru. It was definitely not on my list of places I wanted to visit in the transylvanian part of Romania, but once the locals directed us to it, we had to go.
