Anna Cave

Anna Barlang (Anna Cave) is located in the small town Lillafüred, in a park with a waterfall. It is a small tufa cave, a primary cave which was formed by the deposition of the tufa from limestone rich water. A 40m thick travertine deposit was built up by the Garadna Stream during the last 150,000-200,000 years, but only in the warm perods between the Ice Ages. Pine needles, twigs, and mosses which have been incrusted by the limestone form very special fossils. The limstone cruste is a perfect negative of the original plant while the plant itself is long rotten away. The cave was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century, when a 94m long water tunnel was dug. The Hungarian poet Sándor Petöfi opened the cave, but it was soon forgotten. When the Palace Hotel was built above, 34 small cavern were conected and opened as a show cave in 1927.
