One of the Seven Wonders of Nature" Justyna M from London, United Kingdom wrote in her review on Tripadvisor.

Another TripAdvsior review reads: "Worth visiting on weekdays, not so overcrowded these days. You will be amazed by the dome, which you will pass thru. It's not only cave with a river. Maybe try longer cruise, than basic they offer. Yes, it's more expensive, but more longer and there are more specials to see." Petr_Yanek - Prague, Czech Republic.
