The settlement of Tatranská kotlina (Tatranská Basin) is a good starting point for visiting the cave.

The myths that the Belianska cave was inhabited by prehistoric people are not documented. In the 18-th century it was visited mostly by treasury searchers who were also the authors of its wall paintings.

Cave became interesting for the scientists after the visit of Július Husz and John Britz on August 5, 1881.
It was open to public in 1882.It was one of the first caves with electric lights in the world (1896).
