Behind the middle waterfall cascade there is a cave called Golden Cave (Polish: Złota Jama) hammered by the Walloons (Medieval masters in excavating and processing natural minerals, iron ores, metals, precious stones and quartz) and famous for pegmatite and amethyst stones concentration.Acces to the waterfall is limited and paid.
