Visitors can explore the cave system on guided tours, which are available in several languages. The tours generally last between one and two hours and cover a distance of about 1-2 kilometers (0.6-1.2 miles). During the tour, visitors can marvel at the stunning stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations that have been shaped by thousands of years of water erosion.

One of the highlights of the Baradla Dripstone Cave is the Domica Hall, which is the largest chamber in the cave system. It measures over 120 meters (393 feet) in length and 20 meters (65 feet) in height, making it a truly awe-inspiring sight.
