Molnar Janos cave closed to divers

Molnar Janos Cave has been temporarily closed to visiting divers. The break will last for the next two months until 1 October 2017. Located in Budapest, the cave is one of the most popular attractions for cave divers in this part of Europe.

Enthusiasts of cave diving in this location would like to reassure you that Molnar Janos is doing just fine, and the break was forced by construction and demolition work carried out on the surface in its vicinity. Recall that the cave is located in the very centre of the Hungarian capital.

Although the risk is negligible, for the safety of visitors to the cave, the site management team, in consultation with the construction company, has decided to suspend diving activities between 1 August and 1 October 2017.

As soon as the construction work is finished, divers will be able to return to exploring the corridors of the flooded cave. So if you were planning to go to Hungary, you can book your autumn dates at Molnar Janos with confidence. During the planned closure, the Molnar team invites you to visit another Hungarian attraction for cave divers – the Kobanya mine.

Exploration of the Molnar Janos cave began as early as the early 1970s. Due to its convenient location and intensive exploration of the site, it was soon thoroughly explored… or so it was thought. In 2003, it turned out that new, previously unexplored corridors had been found, and the whole game of exploring this place began again.

At present, more than 7 km of corridors are known, where the maximum depth reached is ~100 metres. Due to good visibility and quite high water temperature of 20-28ºC as well as the location of the object, it is a frequent destination of diving expeditions and a great place to polish your skills in cave diving.
