caves in Germany. The unbelievably poor maintenance of
one of those caves unbelievably disappointed and upset
the cave professionals. They both decided that, since show
caves are extremely popular among crowds of tourists,

caves as much as possible. Visitors must have a chance
to enjoy and experience the mysteries of the underground
world, while experiencing maximum positive emotions and
unforgettable memories without harming cave ecosystem.

Project Cave Lighting™ has been constantly developing.
We formed a team of speleologist associates and special-

systems, control systems, etc.). We selected and tested
modern ecofriendly materials and technologies. We gained
precious experience in the planning and running of subter-
ranean tourist attractions.
