In the immediate vicinity of Interlaken, there are beautiful St. Beatus caves, with which many interesting legends are associated. Locals believe that once in these caves lived dragons, which guarded these places from strangers. The present name of the complex caves is in honor of St. Beatus, a hermit who lived in the 6th century. He lived in these caves for many years, and his tomb was also discovered here. Today, tourists are offered rides on underground lakes of the caves on beautiful ships, made in the form of dragons. Near the caves, there is a park, on whose territory there are spacious observation platforms and restaurants. There is also a very interesting Cave Museum, in which visitors can see a collection of rare minerals.
