    Driving around 50 min. in the direction of Eastern Serbia and Kalafat Mountain, which is not large but rich in historical and cultural sites. As well there are many natural protected areas, one of them is our today's caving adventure. 

    Passing through Samar Cave is authentic caving adventure which requires good physical fitness and basic caving equipment. The total length of all canals is 3197 m. The main canal 1940 m long, consists of four sump narrowings, also called doors. It is known as a tunnel type, and at some points resembles the most beautiful slot canyons, which makes passing through the cave even more spectacular.
