went with friends from Brno. nice guide, melodic czeck language. They did excellent work with this place. I don't know about the pollution from so many visitors but they really try to protect it. worth a visit.

Punka Cave is the largest in a series of caves in this area. You pay for a guided tour that includes a boat ride on an underground river..quite unusual. Beautiful formations throughout. Well worth the trip for cave lovers.

The caves have a very special atmosphere thanks to the specific undeground environment - cold, humid and dark. Be sure you take your jacket and comfortable sneakers, and just enjoy the alien feeling of this place. It is a good idea to come out of...More
