Sablinsky Caves, Ulyanovka village, Leningrad Region, Russia.
There are about 12 Sablinsky Caves. These caves were once mines, where sand was excavated to produce glass. These caves are a part of the Sablinsky Natural Monument. Aside from the caves in the Complex ,there are also two waterfalls, the Sablinka and Tosna rivers, cliffs, burial hills, A.K.Tolstoy’s former mansion and Commander Alexander Nevsky’s camp where his soldiers gathered before the Battle With The Swedes.
In the largest cave, Levoberezhnaya, there already existed a show route. However, since 2000 it had only been open to guided private groups of tourists.
The main attractions of the Cave are:
three underground lakes, each 3 meters deep;
