Balkan Cavers’ Camp 2018

12th Balkan Cavers’ Camp will be held between 2nd and 8th July 2018 in Baru Mare, Șureanu Mountains, Hațeg province, to which we herewith invite all our colleagues from across the Balkans and beyond.


This time the “Balkan Cavers’ Camp” will represent a very special event for us since it will be combined with the National Speleological Congress and the Cave Media Contest “SpeoArta“. Moreover, 2018 represents for us the 100 years anniversary of the Romanian State formation and 150 years since Emil Racoviță, the founder of biospeleology and Romanian speleology, was born. Therefore we are obliged to organise a special event, so look out for a gathering of cavers from different countries sharing the same passion for the beautiful world of karst and caves.

For this event we have also chosen a special location, namely the caves of the Șureanu Mountains, located between the towns of Hunedoara and Petroșani, in the heart of the Hațeg province, which is known to be the cradle of the Dacians, our ancient predecessors. lt is a history-laden area, with magnificent caves (Șura Mare, Cioclovina, Tecuri, Cocolbea), canyons, high mountains and ancient fortresses and citadels waiting to be discovered.
