A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors.

These caves blew me away. I have honestly never seen such an amazing natural phenomena. The experience starts with a 7 minute train ride entering the mountain. Once you arrive you are divided into the correct language for the tour. Our guide was young and...More
