One blogger described the amazing cave, which is located near the Romanian town of Mangalia and its unique ecosystem.

In 1986, during the geological studies before the construction of the power plant near the Romanian town of Mangalia at a depth of about 18 meters it was found closed cave system with specific conditions. Fueled groundwater with a high content of hydrogen sulfide (8-12 mg / l), a cave named Movil, had its own atmosphere, oxygen-poor (7-10%), rich in carbon dioxide (2-3.5%) and containing a significant amount of methane (1 -2%). Her research began in 1990.
