Helictites in the Hostri Hovdy (Scythian) cave
The cave is a labyrinth. The length of its explored passages reaches 3km. The passages are mainly 3-5m high and 1-2m wide splits.
The cave is beautiful and decorated with crystals, which is quite rare for Bukovynian caves.
As the cave is unique and has high scientific significance, its entrance has lockable gates. Visits are only possible upon special arrangement registering each tourist.
Traveling by car, the distance from Chernivtsi will make up to 50 km, the road quality is satisfactory.
