in the cave

In the cave Krásnohorská jaskyňa (south Slovakia) there is no artificial lightening, no electricity, only narrow path, benches over stream and lake. You can move only with ropes and ladders in some parts of cave. You need special cave equipment.

An experienced guide will accompany you into the cave, but should you slip on any of the uneven rocks, trip on the debris, splash into underground pools, fall from steep ladders or lose your balance while traversing a narrow wire bridge, no one is liable but you. The cave is as close to untouched as possible, and the experience all but imitates a real pot-holer's, which means narrow squeezes, hair-raising obstacles and very grimy hands.


Krásnohorská Cave is a karst cave situated at the northern foot of the Silická planina Plain, in the Slovak Karst, 6.5 km southeast of Rožňava, in Slovakia.


The largest stalagmite in existence, generally accepted as being about 12 m in diameter and 32.7 m in height. It grows significantly in volume every year as the incessant drips solidify.

It is one of the biggest sintro column in the world and it is currently listed by the Guinness Book of Records.


The length of the cave is 1350 to 1450 metres and it represents the end of the cave system underground stream Buzgó.

Like the other caves in the Slovak Karst zone, it is on the UNESCO List of the World Natural Heritag
