This cave is one of the largest in the Danube area. It has two entrances, one on the road DN 57 at the Ciucurul Mare and it ends in the Danube. It became a place of shelter for those who wanted to escape the communist regime by swimming in the Danube to the serbians.

The length of the galleries amounts to 1667 m, and they are located on several levels, the lower ones are active.

Among the most beautiful fossil galleries are: the Concretion Gallery and the Column Hall. Also in this cave were found the remains of a bear and a cave hyena, as well as traces of Halstattian culture. At higher flows of the Danube the active area is flooded for a length of approx. 200 m.
