Velnala Cave of Krimulda

The 22.5 m deep (length of galleries – 35 m) cave is formed in the yellow sandstone from Gauja suite 8 m above the water table of Gauja.

It is estimated to be around 10 000 years old and created by a spring, which later disappeared and the cave partially fell in. Since 1980 the cave is closed to tourists (it had special wooden structures built for touristic purposes) due to safety. Until then the cave was a popular tourism site. Ancient pagan place.
