In 13 th century the wall drawings and inscriptions were found in the cave.
During the 2 nd world war, the german army was using the cave for fuel storage, so the airforces wouldn't destroy it. The partisans blew up the storage in 1944. The great fire was burning for a whole week.The soots covered the cave walls and have prevented the growth of new speleothems. Even today you can still see the black walls in the cave.
