Russia’s Longest Underwater Cave (14 photos)


Ordinskaya Cave is the longest underwater cave in Russia, and the biggest gypsum cave in the world. Most of us would be terrified to explore the depths of the cave, but underwater photographer Vitya Lyagushkin and diving journalist Bogdana Vashchenko thrive on just these kinds of adventures…

Submerging themselves into crystal clear blue water, the brave divers give us a perspective most of us will never see in person. The incredible natural architecture found inside the cave is simply magnificent, and the clarity of the images makes them look even more stunning!
