Ice, stalactites and stalagmites, uncreated sculptures, mysterious caves and underground lakes. Kungurskaya ice cave is a unique monument of nature. The grottoes of Kungurskaya ice cave surprise with their beauty and diversity. Brilliantovy Grotto (“Diamond Grotto”) will amaze you with iridescent ice patterns.

Polyarny Grotto (“Polar Grotto”) has a column resembling a frozen waterfall. The name of Sklep Grotto (“Tomb Grotto”) is attributed to the shelter built of stones found in a neighboring cave.
