The paper presents the results of measurements of average monthly radon concentrations obtained in the most beautiful Polish cave, the Niedz´wiedzia Cave, between July 1995 and December 1996. 222 measurements were taken at 7 measurement points with the use of trace detectors LR-115 type II. Distinct seasonal fluctuation of the concentration was observed: the highest values (up to 3.60 kBq/m3) were noted in summer (from April to September), while the lowest ones in winter (0.10 kBq/m3, in January 1996). A sharp increase in the concentration in spring and a decrease in autumn are typical. The main factor controlling radon concentration changes in the air of the Niedz´wiedzia Cave is the process of ventilation.
