This was such a cool area to check out. We parked the scooter of ours and got the ticket of ours at a small area across the road from the entry way. When we walked in, there's nobody better there at all, no tourists and...More

40k per person is a bargain for this interesting adventure through the wartime hospital. The staff are very friendly.

The hospital cave is interested enough to visit, we did however not get a guide as was promised by the people who sold the entry tickets. A guide would have benen useful to explain what all the rooms were used for. Nonetheless it was worthwhile.

Definitely worth visiting. Doesn't take long to walk around but fascinating to see the history. You are expected to pay for parking and an entrance fee when you arrive.

We had been very impressed seeing the cave. Sadly, we did not take the guide, but because it's free I'd recommend it. Think it is nicer to get a little info about the areas in there. It is a huge interesting building in the cave,...More
