The Crystal Cave, despite its name, is located at a height of thirty meters above the level of the village of Kryvche, and those who want to go there must first overcome the winding paths with the forests of Ternopil region, which lead to a unique dungeon.
The name of the cave is quite accurate: its walls resemble huge galleries, which are really covered with shiny crystals. Researchers say that minerals are more than a million years old, and such underground corridors formed on the site of the ancient Sarmatian Sea. The cave itself was found in the XVIII century, as evidenced by the references to it in the documents of that time. After World War II, the passage into the cave was destroyed by explosives, and it was restored only in the sixties of the 20th century. Since then, speleologists have explored more than five kilometers of corridors, unique halls and crystal arches. Another feature of the cave is increased air ionization and the absence of pathogenic organisms, which makes it possible to visit the cave in order to treat respiratory diseases.
How to get there!? The crystal museum is the easiest to get from Ternopil: a bit more than 100 km to go to the village of Kryvche, and there are experienced guides in the cave itself, so there will be no problems with the device of the excursion. We only advise you to take into account that the cave is pretty cool, so take care of appropriate clothing.
