 An expedition to Staritsa’s caves
Tverskaya region

The tangled under-earth labyrinths are surrounded with ancient and modern legends. In March you can find in the caves ice stalactites, which are formed only in this time of the year.
Not far from the small town Staritsa there is a range of natural and artificial caves. Some of which were once rock quarries. White stone lime rock had been quarried here since the 8th century. Numerous projects of unreligious as well as orthodox buildings have been built with this material all over the Volga region since the 12th century. Staritsa’s caves were discovered unintentionally, in 1914 by soldiers digging out practice trenches. In  on of the spelaean expedition the “Kapkan” cave was discovered, its total length of which reaching 30 kilometers. The area of one of the central parts of the cave reaches 1000 square meters. Staritsa’s caves treasure in themselves many mysteries, and, according to one speculation, the legendary library of the Russian king Ivan the 4Th is hidden somewhere in its subsoil riches. Who knows, maybe you will be the one to find it one day…
