Bears' Cave (Romanian: Peștera Urșilor) was discovered in 1975 by "Speodava", an amateur speleologist group, and is considered to be an interesting sightseeing location. The cave is located in the western Apuseni Mountains, on the outskirts of Chişcău village, Bihor County, northwestern Romania.

Bears' Cave is also significant because 140 cave bear skeletons were discovered on the site in 1983.[1]
