3 nearby caves worth a quick look. Two of them have inside ponds - not huge caves at all and the middle cave has very steep steps. Takes about an hour to see all 3.

Three caves in the center of Ereğli. Entrance fee is 5 TL per person. I liked the pond inside Cehennemağzı. There are info tables in English to read about their history.
