We visited the caves and found it very impressive. Our guide gave us a lot of background information, which made the tour more interesting. The museum was also a nice extra, if you are into geology and archeology. We would definitely recommend the caves and...More

As part of a group visit, my wife and myself visited the Petralona Cave (located midway between Moudania and Thessaloniki) which was discovered by a villager in the 1950s. We arrived by mini-bus and parked in the ample parking area. The cave itself is located...More

The visit was very nice. I had an accident before and had to walk on crutches. It was raining heavily and we were the only people there. That is why we were allowed by the guards to park right in front of the cave. We...More

The cave itself is wonderful. It's definitely a sight to behold and when you realise how long all the stalagmites take to form is surreal. The tour guide spoke good English and gave us the best info he could considering the language barrier. The tour...More

This is the biggest cave I've ever seen. You can't even fathom how long it took to form or how long ago the early humans and animals lived in it. It's always the same temperature and they have a museum of all the remains that...More

This is a must see close to Thessaloniki. Cost is €8 per person and well worth it. Although it is called a guided tour you are left to wander the paths yourself. The stalactites and stalagmites are amazing. Some of the paths are a bit...More

In terms of size and stalactites, stalagmites this is really impressive. Kids were captivated. But other than a small poster, there is no information whatsoever. The museum which is basically a large room with prehistoric animal and human relics is also fascinating but again, no...More
