12-th Balkan Cavers Camp in Romania - 2-8 July 2018

Balkan-Cavers-Camp-in-Romania 2018The Romanian Speleological Federation organizes during July 2nd – 8th, 2018 the 12th edition of BALKAN CAVER'S CAMP, the international caver’s meeting, which this year will include both the Romanian Speleological Congress and the "Speoarta" International Media Contest.


The event will take place in Baru Mare, in the Ha_eg County, at the crossroads of the three famous parks: Retezat National Park, the UNESCO Dinosaurs Geopark and Gradistea Muncelului-Cioclovina Natural Park. Because this year we also celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Emil Racovita, the founding father of international biospeleology and Romanian speleology, we plan this event to be a special one, bringing together personalities from around the world of caving.

The program will include special presentations, seminars, field trips, several caves in the Sureanu and Retezat Mountains, and of course photo exhibitions and multimedia shows. The Sureanu Mountains are history laden as they were the epicenter of Romania’s ancient people, the Transylvanian Dacians. It is an area with a very special past, marked by tales and legends, where some of the most beautiful Romanian caves are present: Sura Mare, Cioclovina, Tecuri, Cocolbea, but also ancient citadels that have left their mark on European history and culture, which we invite you to discover.
