A silent and wonderful world of caves, a world which would remain unknown if the people passionate about exploring the depths would not gather each year to bring it to light through photography and film. The XXXVIII-a edition of SpeoArta festival is a project included in The National Speleology Congres, the annual romanian speleological meeting. We gather from cavers to national speleology personalities, biologists, researchers and passionates to join specific presentations, conferences, contests and not in the last place exceptional caving trips in Zarandului Mountains. During the festival there will be organized contests with karst content, exhibitions, outdoor activities, trips, workshops, underground explorations and many other activities in order to attract youngsters to practice these activities. 8 is a lucky number… especially in caving where we use the 8 at every anchor point, so therefore we are pleased to announce that we are the 8th edition hosted by Polaris. The 8th SpeoArta edition, organized by Polaris caving club, a club with tradition in Romania that had an important contribution in Romanian karst exploration. Since 2016 when we resuscitated SpeoArta and we have given it a new life, a new beginning, after we have brought back to life this festival at Blaj and we have grown it, we took SpeoArta at Balkan Cavers Camp at National Caving Congresses. To keep the tradition, from passion for the underground photography, during 16th – 20th September 2020, we will bring SpeoArta at Bard, in the Zarand Mountains partnering in the National Speleology Congres.
